LA FRANCE NE DOIT RENVOYER PERSONNE VERS LE SOUDAN.
STOP AUX DÉPORTATIONS.
France continues to deport to Sudan!
After Jebril on March 20, and then Mr. Abdallah on April 17, today there are still Sudanese nationals detained in the Coquelles Detention Center (62), who are at risk of deportation to Sudan.
Today there was the attempt to return one of them, having his passport on him, just after his passage before the Administrative Court . The information that we have is that the attempt would have failed because the person could refuse the flight, but we stay alert.
These individual cases are the few we know about. Deportations to Sudan, as well as to other countries, are not exceptions: an Afghan asylum seeker is currently locked up in Coquelles since several weeks. Alifayez has already resisted a first attempt to return him to Sweden, country which has already rejected his asylum application. Sweden is massively returning people to Afghanistan despite the known risks in this country, one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
You find here the petition launched by the association Terre d’Errance to try stop this deportation as well as a report on France3 (all in French) on Shaima and Alifayez and their love story in France.
These situations are not happening solely in Coquelles detention center: in these days of intense demonstrations in Sudan, some people retained at the CRA in Oissel (near Rouen, 76) are also suffering the consequences of racist policies and are at risk deportation.
Late last week, a young Sudanese man was deported against his will to Sudan. He had, few weeks before, managed to refuse a first flight.
The particularly inhuman conditions of the Oissel detention center made it impossible for him to communicate his situation to anyone and could not receive or make calls to his friends or family, or receive any support. This situation allows the authorities to expel more easily and discreetly.
To this day neither his friends in Calais nor his family in Sudan have any news of the young man deported.
Today, two other Sudanese people are at risk of being sent back to Sudan from Oissel detention center.
For one of them, Mr. A., the police gave the information that his first flight would be April 25, tomorrow. However, the police came to pick him up this afternoon, Wednesday, April 24, to drive him to the airport. This time, Mr A. could refuse to leave from the center and was not deported.
The second Sudanese national also refused his first flight.
Their situation is extremely precarious, they risk at any moment being forcibly taken away.
Both fear torture, imprisonment or death if returned to Sudan.
FRANCE SHOULD NOT RETURN PERSON TO THE SUDAN.
STOP THE DEPORTATIONS.
HERE an article which lists the possible things you can do, with the contacts of the prefecture of the Pas de Calais, responsible for the OQTF that is ground for the retention and the eventual deportation of those locked up in Coquelles, and of one of the Sudanese in Oissel.
For the other person detained in Oissel, Mr A., you can contact the Prefecture of Calvados or write directly to the Prefect firstname.lastname@example.org.
