by , under Enrique Tessieri, W. Che

We reported Saturday that an Iraqi asylum seeker in Oulu called MS was detained by the police on Friday.

Migrant Tales was contacted about the detention the following day. The detained man is an Iraqi and he has made a video stating the following:

This video cannot be accessed on this site. The one above is from Jan.
“My name is MS and I have been living in Oulu for a year and a few months. I got the second rejection on my application for asylum. Two weeks ago I contacted the lawyer who lodged an appeal [to the supreme administrative court on the district court decision]. Yesterday [Friday] the police came and asked me to pack all my clothes and took me to a prison cell. I called the lawyer who asked me to please wait till Sunday when a judge will make a decision on whether I will be deported to Iraq or not.” 
Migrant Tales will try to follow this story as closely as possible.
