by , under Enrique Tessieri, W. Che

Migrant Tales wrote on Thursday about the detention of a twenty-four-year-old Iraqi asylum seeker who escaped deportation on January 3 by acting in an unruly manner on a plane. He now awaits deportation to Iraq next week.

Like all deportation cases that we are able to cover, we would like to ask the readers to send words of encouragement to the person. You can send emails to this asylum seeker via editor@migranttales.net.

We also took the opportunity to ask the asylum seeker presently detained at Helsinki’s Metsälä immigration detention center, any news he’d like to share with us.

He responded:
