Man escapes deportation from Sweden by crying inconsolably

Man escapes deportation from Sweden by crying inconsolably

This is the second time the 35-year-old man, whose asylum application was rejected, has avoided deportation to his home country.

“Inconsolable crying” on the part of a grown-up Afghan man slated to
be sent back to his native country had effectively stopped his
expulsion, the newspaper Dagen reported.

According to Dagen, 35-year-old Hossein Muhammadin had previously applied for asylum in Sweden, but was rejected and was facing expulsion.

 Muhammadin claimed to be a Christian convert, whereas the Swedish
authorities didn’t accept his explanation and decided he was to be sent

This past weekend, Muhammadin was to be flown to Afghanistan’s
capital, Kabul, but the flight was interrupted before the plane took
off, a fellow member of the Lidköping Pentecostal Assembly told Dagen, attributing this to Muhammadin’s breakdown.

“We believe this was a panic attack that hit him on board. He cried
relentlessly and shouted, so that they had to disembark him,” Rolf
Wernersson told Dagen.

According to the newspaper, the Afghan man is now back at a migrant center in Kållared outside Gothenburg.

By their own admission, his friends at the Pentecostal assembly will
attempt to have his asylum application reviewed, following the breakdown

“We will try to find out what we can do to keep him in Sweden.
Perhaps we can use his breakdown episode as a new circumstance,” Rolf
Wernersson said.

According to Dagen, a previous attempt to deport Hossein
Muhammadin in April failed for reasons unknown. He was also reported to
have appealed his rejection several times.

Sweden’s Afghan diaspora numbers over 44,000 people and has been
estimated to have grown exponentially during the recent migrant crisis,
in which Afghans constitute a high percentage alongside Syrians, Iraqis
and Eritreans.

Last month, a much-debated decision was passed by the Swedish
Parliament, allowing a total of 9,000 Afghans billed as “unaccompanied
refugee children” to stay in the Scandinavian country despite lacking
grounds for asylum reasons and having had their previous applications

None of the 9,000 Afghans had valid documents at the time of their
arrival, and 78 of them were found to have lied about their age.

This step, which by the Swedish government’s own estimation will set
the state coffers back $350m in the coming three years alone, doesn’t
apply to asylum seekers not labeled as children.
