update 8th of May 2016 :Mr D was deported by force, feet and hands tied, with sticky tape on his mouth to prevent him from shouting.
D has been retained in our centres for 8 months, waiting to be deported to his ‘country of origin’, Tunisia. D took part in the hunger strike movement at the 127bis centre and he continues to support the strikers despite a systematic repression on them and on any kind of support. He would like to be present at the Steenrock https://steenrock.wordpress.com/ this Saturday 7th of May to tell the demonstrators about the treatment they get in the centres and he is asking for our help to prevent his deportation!
He has been living here for 10 years, has worked his way around, he committed a ‘crime’ for which he was condemned, then he got stable and he has been living quietly with his girlfriend in Antwerp for 4 years.
His girlfriend doesn’t want to be separated from him. ‘He is all my life’ she says. She denounces these retentions and speaks of ugly wheeling and dealing and of a real mafia from the management side and the Foreigners Office that manage these closed centres and organise the deportations.
She could not go and visit him in the different centres where he was moved to because she has difficulties to move seen her health state and the finances required for these trips.
D will be deported this Friday through Rome by one of the airlines that actively cooperates to this deportation policy, ALITALIA. He will be taken away from his prison in Steenokkerzeel by his escort this Friday at 8.30 a.m. to be driven to the airport.
It will be extremely difficult to go and speak to the passengers at the check-in seen the ‘security’ measures currently in place, but we call for a fax/mail campaign and phone calls to the persons in charge of these deportations!
