Mr TM arrived from Cameroon 3 years ago. He was 20 years old. He was arrested in January 2013 and has been detained ever since in our detention centres, firstly in Merksplas, then in Vottem and currently in Bruges.
On 4th April he was subjected to a third deportation attempt, which he resisted. The passengers on the flight to Douala reacted and refused to travel with someone who was being forcibly removed. On the same day, the Immigration Office tried again to put him on a flight to Casablanca without success. In light of Mr TM’s resistance, they gave up. Mr TM was struck and was taken back to the detention centre in Bruges. He is currently still suffering the physical after-effects of the violence experienced during this ion attempt.http://www.gettingthevoiceout.org/appel-expulsion-3eme-tentative/
Mr B will experience a new deportation attempt this Thursday 2nd of May. Flight to Douala, 10.40 a.m, again organised by SN Airlines. He is well determined to refuse this expulsion, wishing to remain close to us. He is asking for our help.
In case of failure, the Immigration Office may try again to put him on a new flight, it will most probably be the Air Maroc flight to Casablanca at 17:40.
Let’s prevent the deportations and offer a helping hand to Mr. TM.
Meet at the airport at 08:40 on 2nd May to speak to the passengers of the SN Airlines flight to Duala and to SN Airlines staff.
Let’s also try to be present at the check-in for the 15:40 Air Maroc flight to Casablanca in case Mr TM is put on that flight.
