As we have previously alerted, the expulsion of Mohammed Moussa to Sudan was expected to take place this morning.
He was on the Qatar Airways flight to Doha from 9:25 am to Charles de Gaulle airport, terminal 1.
A call to gather on site from 7 am to noon:
Here is the testimony he gave to the collective La Chapelle Debout for it to be published:
“Are you sending me away to die? Give me my freedom “
Today we spoke with Mohamed Moussa who has been locked up for 43 days at the Mesnil Amelot and can be expelled via Doha with the company Qatar Airways by the flight of 9:25 this Thursday, March 16, 2017, one day before the end of his detention.
Stop the deportation of Mohamed Moussa and those of all others.
“I was a trader. I was selling food between northern Darfur and the south where I come from (Nyala) to Sudan.
I was selling sugar, oil, flour, tea, tomato sauce and even coca and pepsi. Sometimes I also sold clothes like pants when there were some. Twice a month I used public transport to make the shuttle between the North and the South.
I had inherited a small nest egg to do this buisness. He came partly from the inheritance after the death of his father, who was also a merchant and owned a small supermarket.
I am 30 years old and am the elder of a family of 5. There are my brother Amjad, 26 years old, and I have three sisters: Majda (24), Mahla (22) and Maissa years).
My father died killed by the war and the Janjaweed by Chiria. “
You must know that Mohamed is Zaghawa. This ethnic group represents 6% of the Sudanese population and is targeted and persecuted by the Sudanese government .
It is with this same government that France and the European Union sign “cooperation agreements” in which some give money or make “debt relief” when the others undertake to control their nationals well And their borders.
“One day when I was returning to see my sick mother, I was caught by a militia who took me to a depot next to a railway line near Nyala. From there, I was transferred to a prison 15 km from the city where I stayed for 10 months. I do not want to remember or talk about what happened there. That part of my life was very hard, black. We were in 2012.
“Following my uncle’s intervention, militiamen amongst those who locked me up came to see me and told me they would let me go on the express condition that I leave my Darfur land. So I went to Al Fashir and then I went to Libya.
There, after doing various odd jobs, I worked as a farm worker in a field for a boss who hosted me from 2013 to 2015. Despite the war I could have stayed there if I had not had a job, Other problems. Twice members of militias and armed gangs came to rackle the farm, I was threatened because I had no money, insult, and mistreat. I was threatened with death: “We’ll kill you dirty stranger,” they said. Several times I went to see my boss who answered: “that’s how I can do nothing.”
In September 2016, I took a small boat.
I paid 1,000 Lybian dinars. I traveled in the hold as I had not paid a lot of money. We were 110 people piled up for 11am, after which we were accosted by another larger boat in which we stayed two days before arriving in Italy.
I managed not to leave my fingerprints in Italy.
I arrived in Paris last October and spent 5 days at La Chapelle to sleep in the street. In front of the Camp. I wanted to rest but it was not possible. Several people advised me there to go to Calais because it was simpler for the procedures, faster and there were organizations that helped the exiles.
On 31/01, I had two euros left in my pocket and I was hungry.
I “went shopping” and sat in a public park to eat.
The police came to see him and they asked for my papers.
I did not understand anything [Mohamed does not speak French and very little English]. They took me to the police station and there they gave me a paper. I refused to sign because I did not understand what was written [it was an obligation to leave the French territory].
From the police station I was taken to a second center “Paris Charles de Gaulle”.
This is where I wanted to apply for asylum but I was told it was too late. 
An Afghan exile died following an attempt to cross this Saturday. He had jumped off a truck that was going in the wrong direction, and lost consciousness while trying to go back to the Grande-Synthe refugee camp near Dunkirk.
This is the second death at the border since the beginning of the year. On January 21, Johnsina died crushed on the highway near Calais.
Mr M. was arrested in Calais on 31 January. An Obligation to Leave the French Territory was issued against him with Sudan as country of destination. He was transferred to the detention center in Mesnil Amelot, near Roissy – Charles de Gaulle airport, where he is currently locked up.
Although he has not yet been presented to the Sudanese consular authorities for identification and to issue the necessary pass for his deportation, a flight was scheduled for his deportation on Thursday Aircraft of Qatar Airways, which generally participates in expulsions to Sudan. March 16 is his penultimate day of detention, the maximum duration of which is 45 days, and he should otherwise be released the next day.

To argue, you can build on the findings of Amnesty International (both in French, but several articles and researches about Sudan can be found on the English website as well):
Fahrad was an interpreter for a UN mission in Afghanistan. For this, like other people who have worked for international agencies or NGOs, he is threatened by the Taliban. However, his asylum application in Norway was rejected.
He then passed by Germany, France, willing to go to the United Kingdom, and was arrested in Calais. From there, it is the European regulatory machinery that plays: he is detained and sent back to the European country where he applied for asylum, Norway. And the Norwegian authorities, who have denied him asylum, are going to expel him to Afghanistan, where he is in danger, as they have done in other occasions.
On Streetvox, a tribune of Fahrad in which he explains its story and the stakes of its expulsion (in French):
Supplemented by a tribune of Marion Beaufils, lawyer of the Cimade, who restates the context:
The flight planned for the expulsion of Fahrad is at 11:15 am, Monday, March 13, at terminal 1 of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. A call to rally was made:
UPDATE: he was let out of the plane and wasn t deported. He his still in detention, and still at risks of being deported.
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.
