Mr. A is from Somalia. He arrived in Belgium in 2015. He was 17 years old, lived on the street and already had severe post-traumatic stress, certified by a psychiatrist. He submitted an asylum application in 2015 and 2017, which was rejected.CGRS and the RVV (Council for Foreigners’ Disputes) had questioned the credibility of his story;
He was arrested and placed in a detention centre on 16/02/2019.
He made two new asylum applications from the detention centre, one for medical reasons. Mogadishu is considered a safe city by the CGRS and the RVV Conseil du contentieux (Council for Foreigners’ Disputes).
During the past five months, he has suffered all the setbacks to which everyone in the detention centres are subjected. The Immigration Department continued to harass him, despite his very worrying physical and psychological condition. His requests for release, made by his successive lawyers, were rejected by the judge.
Mr. A has no one more in Somalia. His father was murdered in Somalia in 2013, his brother is a recognized refugee in Germany and his mother lives in a refugee camp outside Somalia.
He underwent a first deportation attempt on 01/04/2019, which he refused. A second deportation attempt was planned for 25/06/2019, which was cancelled at the last minute because, according to the Immigration Office, a member of his escort was ill.
On 12/07/2019, a detention order was extended to enable a new deportation.
The Office has planed to forcibly deport him with a European pass on 17/07/2019. Mr A will not have the physical strenght (“He is as fat as a shrimp” says his host) to resist this expulsion. He will be handcuffed by federal police officers restreined by links and kept by an escort.
He urged us to inform the passengers about his presence on the plane and to address the staff and the flight commander, who is the only authority whp can finally decide whether or not to deport him on his flight. http://www.gettingthevoiceout.org/how-to-stop-a-deportation/
