Rally Staged in Germany over Forced Deportation of Palestinian Family

Some 100 German activists rallied in Passau city, protesting a decision by the Bavarian government to deport the Palestinian refugee from Syria Arafat Shreih, his wife Samah Daqaq, and their child from Germany to Latvia.

The rally-goers voiced their anger over underway attempts to torn the family apart and urged the local authorities to backtrack on the refoulement decision.

The Bavarian government in Germany issued a decision to deport the family to the eastern European country of Latvia, where they were first granted asylum, before they headed for Germany.

The German authorities rebuffed the family’s appeals for a legal stay in the country, where they have lived for three years.

The expectant wife and her husband, both formerly sheltered in AlNeirab Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Aleppo, were detained by the German police while their six-year old child was transferred to an orphanage.

Activists said the wife was released from a detention center, pending her deportation. As soon as she showed up at the airport the police decided to delay her refoulement after medical checks diagnosed her with health disorders.

The family fled AlNeirab Camp for Palestinian refugees in Aleppo, before they reached Greece. Shortly after, the UN secured their arrival to Latvia, where they were granted asylum.

The family had been enduring abject conditions in Latvia due to socio-cultural and linguistic discrepancies along with xenophobic reactions and denial of access to vital services in the country.
