Mrs K, Rwandese, retained in the Caricole closed centre for more than 3 months, is in great danger in her country because she is accused of complicity in the conflict between Rwanda and Burundi. Why? Because her comapnion, the father of her child, is Burundian and acknowledged as a refugee in Belgium where he is working.
Her lawyer introduced an appeal for her release. Indeed, when someone requests asylum, the Belgian law says that they can not be deprived of liberty if another residence possibility exists. In her case, this possibility would come from her companion. A record for their wedding is almost complete to be introduced at the commune.
After the contestation of several decisions on her deprivation of liberty that were taken illegally, and the two successive actions by the Foreigners Office, the lawyer seems optimistic about the result of the release request that will be judged next Wednesday 31 October.
However, instead of waiting for the result of the request, the Foreigners Office are in a hurry to deport the woman so as to avoid the release which could be pronounced. This way of acting, going beyond all the elementary principles of regularity, has her receiving a ticket for a deportation the day before the judgement, i.e on Tuesday 30 October.
Her deportation is planned on Egyptair flight MS726 at 3 p.m. to Cairo, and then to Nairobi.
Let’s meet at the airport at 1 p.m to warn the passengers of the presence of this woman accompanied by an escort and of their right to refuse this forced deportation on their flight.
