Three minors and their mother, were deported from the Federal Republic of Germany.
The minors are aged 3, 6 and 9 years and two of them have been attending School in Germany.
In an interview with Foroyaa, their mother said she has been residing in German for over eleven years.
“The children were all born in Germany and were attending School in that country. I was just from shopping, when my door was knocked by the German Police. They asked me to pack my things, because I will be deported to the Gambia. They went for my 3 year old son at the Nursery School he was attending and brought him home,” she said.
She said since their arrival in the Gambia, the children’s health has been at stake because they are always sick.
“Currently, the two of them are sick. I am worried because they have never been to Africa. They were just packed and deported to the Gambia. I feel this is not fair. Their Schooling has now been interrupted and I don’t know what to do,” she said.
When contacted, Officials of the German Embassy’s Dakar Liaison Office in the Gambia, said they are always notified of every deportation that the German Government carries out.
“We are provided with the information of the deportees from Germany to the Gambia. We were not provided with the details of the children and their mother. They do not have any documents that they were deported from Germany. We cannot do anything about their case,” the Consular said.
