Another Protest in Support of a Chechen Family in Segré
The daily provincial French newspaper, Ouest-France, has reported that about 100 people gathered in the city of Segré to support a family of Chechen asylum seekers who are facing deportation from France.
On the morning of January 12, about 100 people gathered in the city of Segré. Protesters explained that the young Chechen family received a negative decision from the OFPRA (the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateles Persons), and the prefecture immediately issued an order which asks the family to leave France. But, the family applied to the National Court of Asylum Seekers (CNDA) and the prefecture’s demand is against to the human rights, because the judgment hasn’t been completed yet. The protesters asked for refugee status for the family.
Recall that earlier we reported the situation facing the Chechen asylum seeker family, which includes 3 children, as well as the creation of a support group.
