This past Saturday (14 July), a 35-year-old Afghan was to be deported to Kabul. But the deportation was halted after the man had panic attacks and started crying uncontrollably, Dagenreports.
The 35-year-old Hossein Muhammadin from Afghanistan was to be deported from Sweden for the second time.
But it did not go as planned.
According to his own words, Muhammadin had converted to Christianity, but the Swedish Migration Board rejected his asylum application because the authorities did not believe his conversion to be genuine, and that it was really just a ploy in order to stay in the country.
Muhammadin, who is said to be a member of the Lidköping Pentecostal Assembly, was to have been deported back to his home country in April.
However, the deportation was halted at the last minute. And so was the second deportation attempt that should have taken place on Saturday.
This happened after the 35-year-old became anxious and started crying.
The aircraft never left the tarmac.
“We think it was a panic attack that he experienced on the plane. He cried relentlessly and shouted so they had to carry him off,” said his friend Rolf Wernersson, also member of the Pentecostal Society.
Hossein Muhammadin is now once again in the custody of the Migration Board in Kållared, and the Lidköping Pentecostal Assembly are saying they will do everything possible to help him to stay permanently. According to the Christian newspaper, the congregation plans to use the “fragile state” of the 35-year-old Afghanistan as the “new circumstance” allowing him to get a residence permit.
