Afghan asylum seeker in Joutseno: “Good morning to [you] too”

by , under Enrique Tessieri

In September, an Afghan family consisting of three adults, two minors and their parents left Finland for Germany for fear that they would be deported to Afghanistan. One of them, a 24-year-old  young man, was sent back to Finland from Germany this week. From the Metsälä Immigration Removal Center, he sent to the Joutseno, which was a former prison. 

We will be following this asylum seeker’s life in the Joutseno Immigration Removal Center and do everything possible so they will not deport him to Afghanistan.

If you want to send him a message to him via [email protected]
