At the airport, there were 5 men and 1 woman from the federal police. « I had swallowed a razor blade because I didn¹t want to go back to Togo. They told me, OK so that way you may croak in Togo. » Blood came out of his mouth and ran all over his clothes. The police took off his clothes to clear all the traces. « They hid my clothes, I don¹t know whereŠ ». « Blood was still running, I kept it in my mouth and when I called for help on the plane the blood came out. » When he shouted, the police squeezed his neck. « They were blocking my mouth and my nose at the same timeŠ I was suffocating. » A young man stood up and said « You are going to kill him! ». There was a lot of noise. B was half unconscious. The captain arrived and said « I can not accept him on board ». He was taken out of the plane, a car came « they brutally threw me in the car ». B. asked if they wanted to kill him. A police officer gave him an elbow strike and said that it was not over, that when he would come back he would see what would happen. « I will never forget that in my whole life ».

B. was arrested in Zaventem in decembre 2016. Originally from Togo, he was in transit at Zaventem airport to flee the persecutions he was going through in his home country. His offence? His sexual orientation. B. is gay. In Togo he could be sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. “For my country’s authorities, it is an evil spirit that hosts a person, and in order to get rid of it, it has to be beaten up or imprisoned.”

Therefore, he had come to Belgium to seek for protection. As an answer he already got his first eviction ticket. The CGRA do not believe in his homosexuality. “The Office of the General Commissionner points out that you were not able to convince them” they said during the appeal procedure. If one could reverse the exercise, how would you prove your heterosexuality?

“I prefer to die in prison in Belgium than having to go back to Togo.”
“If they deport me to Togo, it is the same as if they were bringing an animal to the slaughterhouse.”
