France Deports Chechen Asylum Seeker

Local sources have reported that French authorities have deported a former Chechen resistance fighter to Russia.

Earlier, we had brought Chechen asylum seeker Mr T’s emergency case to everyone’s attention. In spite of the efforts of the Committee Chechen, French Interior Ministry authorities did not go back on their decision on Mr T’s situation. His expulsion had been determined as of September 18, however the Chechen asylum seeker refused to take the plane and resisted several times. Finally, on September 21 he was handcuffed and accompained by two police officers and forced to embark on the Paris to Moscow flight from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. His fate is not known at the moment.

Recall that, Mr T, born in 1974, was a former resistance fighter within the Chechen national liberation front against the Russian military invaders in his homeland. He had also been abducted and beaten by the Russian soldiers. He had been in France since 2009. The Committee Chechen estimates that despite his “good case” for asylum, his application was rejected due to a lack of support from associations in France.
