From forced marriage to expulsion: a new Semira? 

We learn today, with horror, the detention of a young girl of 17 years and a 5th attempt of expulsion this Thursday 10/02/2021 towards Cotonou. 

She arrived in Belgium fleeing a forced marriage in Benin with her uncle on 25/06/2021. As soon as she arrived in Belgium, she was locked up in a closed center. Since then, she has made several requests for asylum, all of which were refused, as her story was not considered “credible”.

A test to verify her age had been requested upon her arrival, which, according to our information, was refused.  She is determined to refuse this new expulsion, being very afraid to return to her country and asks for our help. 

*Flight SN 231 to Abidjan and Cotonou 11:25 am on 10/02 /2022 

Let’s meet  at the airport this 10/02/2022 at 9 am to prevent this expulsion. 

Let’s prevent this deportation by writing, faxing, phoning the people responsible for these criminal acts.
