Three flights to Congo within eight days! Frontex always?june 2013

Really, it is a bad taste serial story that goes on and on… While around 30 Congolese people coming from Belgium, Ireland, France and Germany were deported on a Frontex flight to Congo last week, this Sunday 23rd of June, a new military flight was planned to deport 4 others; those Congolese who had not been deported the week before! Determination, did you say determination?

One Congolese woman among them could escape deportation at the very last minute thanks to her lawyer’s persistent intervention but on Saturday, the same woman, still at the 127bis centre, was again isolated in anticipation of a new deportation attempt, and on Sunday, she was again taken out of the isolation cell and told that she would not be deported that day! Needless to say that this treatment is highly devastating!

This somehow illustrates the way human beings who are not from our regions are being treated, human beings who are forbidden to reside among us.

Thus, the Foreigners Office confirmed that there would be three persons on a military flight on the 23rd, at the same time as fright for development cooperation purposes, and reassured that there would even be a doctor and an escort…

To express their indignation, around twenty people gathered in front of the military airport in Melsbroek.

And at 9 p.m. on the same day, we learned that the 127bis centre was filled again with Congolese people and that around 20 of them had been arrested!

What an obscurity aroung the authorities’ schemes! Communications are too much fragmented! Who are the people who are quickly detained in a closed centre in view of a deportation and where do they come from? Was there a need to make the expenses profitable?

The Office of Shame assure they were not aware of the problems the deported people would have encountered, but did they enquire about he situation? Do they care?

This is just another chapter of the barbaric story that writes itself daily under the indifferent look of those who do not really want to see…
