The Court of Palermo has overturned the decision of the Territorial Commission and finally granted refugee status to a young man from Cameroon who suffered persecution in his country because he was in a homosexual relationship.
The trial of the "six heroes" will begin on May 31 in Brussels. The six, passengers on a recent flight to Africa, are being prosecuted for speaking up to oppose police violence against a man being forcibly returned to Cameroon.
The use of tear gas, handcuffs and a luggage trolley constituted degrading treatment against a Cameroonian man being deported by Czech police.
Tear gas and handcuffs should no longer be tools to force foreigners onto planes for deportation, a Czech court says in response to an unseemly expulsion attempt.
