FACES OF DEPORTATION: FACE THE CONSEQUENCES

JOKE KAVIAAR

Imagine.. You went through a lot of trouble getting here. Here.. in Europe. Imagine.. you had to buy a false passport and then you had to throw it away. Imagine, you lost not only your home, your family and friends, and all the documents to prove that you were being prosecuted, tortured, threatened, beaten up, bombed, almost killed. You even lost the papers to prove who you are, where you were born and raised, from which part of the planet you came. Imagine that. You are lost. Continue reading

HEAVY ABUSE IN DETENTION CENTER ROTTERDAM, AGAIN

 

UPDATE, 11.37: This morning, around 9 am, the doctor has visited mister Bah. “He has been heavily abused”, she says. “He has a big bump on his forehead, and a cut in his right cheeck, caused by a pen the guard was using. He has bruised on his forehead and his temple.” The ministry of Justice stated that Bah himself was being violent, but according to the doctor he is “barely able to walk”, because of his weakened condition.

[No Border Network] Interview with Nessar/I want out of here, if worse comes to worse in a coffin

 

I WANT OUT OF HERE, IF WORSE COMES TO WORSE IN A COFFIN

 

INTERVIEW IN NEWSPAPER THE NRC

 

 

“Interview with Nessar: ‘l want out of here, if worse comes to worst in a coffin’

A group of hunger strikers protests an inhumane detention regime.

What do you say to a man who is crying from his pain because he hasn’t drunk or eaten in days? Please stop, now? Or: Keep going!

twee-hongerstakers
Sayam Uddin Nessar (1970) from Afghanistan hasn’t drunk anything since Tuesday and was already on hunger strike since Monday. During the visiting hour on Saturday he lets people read a letter he has written. It says: ‘Under no circumstances do l want to be admitted to a hospital. I also refuse any artificial feeding, l do not agree to receive fluids via an IV, l do not agree to receive any medically necessary drugs.’

‘Either l’m released, or l’m leaving the detention center, in Rotterdam, in a coffin’ he says with a dry mouth. Every five minutes he reaches for his side, his kidneys protest. That was Saturday afternoon. Yesterday morning he called to say he would be taken to the hospital that day.

Frontex [Human Rights Watch] Report/The EU’s dirty hands

 

THE EU’S DIRTY HANDS

Frontex Involvement in Ill-Treatment of Migrant Detainees in Greece
SEPTEMBER 21, 2011
This report assesses Frontex’s role in and responsibility for exposing migrants to inhuman and degrading detention conditions during four months beginning late in 2010 when its first rapid border intervention team (RABIT) was apprehending migrants and taking them to police stations and migrant detention centers in Greece’s Evros region. The RABIT deployment has been replaced by a permanent Frontex presence. The report is based on interviews with 65 migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in Greece in November and December 2010 and February 2011, as well as with Frontex and Greek police officials.

Frontex [Human Rights Watch] EU: Border Agency exposes migrants to abusive conditions

EU: BORDER AGENCY EXPOSES MIGRANTS TO ABUSIVE CONDITIONS

 

 

Frontex Sends Migrants to Inhuman and Degrading Treatment in Greek Detention Centers
SEPTEMBER 21, 2011
  • Since November 2010, Frontex, the EU’s border agency, has deployed “guest officers” seconded from other EU member states, to assist Greece in patrolling its land borders. Migrants detained by patrols are transferred to detention centers in Greece where the conditions of detention are so poor that they are deemed inhuman and degrading.

    © 2011 Associated Press
Frontex has become a partner in exposing migrants to treatment that it knows is absolutely prohibited under human rights law. To end this complicity in inhuman treatment, the EU needs to tighten the rules for Frontex operations and make sure that Frontex is held to account if it breaks the rules in Greece or anywhere else.

[Welcome to Europe]/Frontex

FRONTEX

 

Frontex is the European border agency, founded in 2004 and operational since 2005. The agency has their seat in Warsaw, Poland, from where it directs its activities. Although it is often believed, Frontex is not an actual border police, with a staff in uniform and with the task to actually police the borders of the EU. Rather, Frontex is a coordinating mechanism of the European Union organizing the cooperation of the border police bodies of the member states of the EU. In this respect, Frontex is like a meta border police: it is both above and behind the everyday practices of border guards.
