Mr R was arrested at the airport 4 months ago. He is Congolese. He came from South Africa and arrived to Belgium through Germany. Since his arrival, he has been retained at the Caricole closed centre. He introduced an asylum request that was rejected. The Foreigners Office want to deport him to Bangkok for the simple reason that his mobile phone comes from Bangkok so they are sure he was there!! He tells us that since he has been at the Caricole centre he could notice that most of the Congolese people are turned back upon their arrival because they don’t have any address, place of residence etc in Belgium. He says this is to be blamed on the racism against ‘black’ people.
One of his Congolese co-detainees was also deported to Bangkok. He was beaten violently by the police at the airport. He finally got to Bangkok where he would have been sentenced to one year in prison because of illegation immigration.
Mr R is really scared to find himself in Bangkok, a country he doesn’t know. Exhausted, he is asking the Foreigners Office to deport him to the DRC.
They will try to deport him for the second time this Thursday 24th of September to Bangkok. He is ready to do anything to prevent his deportation.
24/09, direct flight to Bangkok 1.30 p.m. TG 935 and SN8601
Let’s gather at the airport at 11.30 a.m to speak to the passengers!
