THE 10 ALGERIANS DETAINED IN MÁLAGA ARE NOW IN ALGERIA
The group of ten Algerian migrants who faced reprisals from the Delegation of the Government in Melilla arrived yesterday in Algeria, following their transfer from the Capuchinos detention centre.
Today, some 15 Algerians will appear voluntarily in the Comisaría to return to their country; another similar group will not be able to do so until next week, according to what they’ve been told. There are many detainees in the CETI in Melilla who are asking to return to their places of origin without anyone willing to listen to them; at the same time, there is the repression of any protest movement, resulting in the summary expulsion of key protagonists.
The situation that the Government’s policies are causing in the CETI are catastrophic from a human rights perspective. The five migrants from Marine I whom Spain was obliged to accept remain detained in the CETI; tens of people flee every night out of fear of being arrested and deported; a school is being planned inside the CETI in order to ensure that the children living with their families in the CETI do not have access to the public schools attended by other children; no one listens to requests for voluntary return and people continue to be held for years in the city.
The immigration policies of the Socialist government must dissociate itself from the policy being set in Europe by the far right.
