The Council for Aliens Disputes has just issued its verdict on this issue. He followed the position of the Immigration Office and rejected the request to suspend repatriation, said Mr Francken. The family has four children. She was denied all procedures to obtain a residence permit and has been staying illegally since 2013. On two occasions she was placed in an open house, waiting for her repatriation, but she fled every time.
The announcement of the imprisonment of children last week had led to a strong mobilization. This practice has led to various convictions in Belgium by the European Court of Human Rights, but has recently been restored by a decree. This is the first family to arrive in one of the new 127bis closed center units.
