Hamid, Eritrean migrant arrested in Calais and transferred to the detention center in Oissel near Rouen (see here and here), was deported to Sudan on Tuesday. He had been declared Sudanese during a visit of representatives of the Sudanese authorities in the station of the border police in the hours that followed his arrest, and from the moment where a pass had been issued by the Embassy of the Sudan, he was, locked in detention, unable to prove that it was Eritrean. But once arrived in Sudan, it can very easily be identified as Eritrean and sent back to Eritrea, which is one of the worst dictatorships on the planet.

This is a testament to the trivialization of the deportations to Sudan and the close cooperation between the French and Sudanese authorities to make them easier.
