KM, one of three Iraqi asylum seekers that Finland planned to deport Monday with SH and AM, was released today after the district supreme court decided to review his case. 

“I feel horrible,” he told Migrant Tales shortly after he was released. “A man came to the room [where I was detained in Metsälä] and asked if I was KM. He said I can go free.”

KM, seen in the picture, was released today from detention.

KM said he felt “horrible” because two of his Iraqi friends were still being held at the Metsälä detention camp.

Migrant Tales will continue to follow and update the plight of the three Iraqi asylum seekers.
