Ahmed – Iraq

Ahmed comes from Iraq, he came to Germany in 1998, to Möhlau in Saxony-Anhalt. In 2002, he received a negative decision on his asylum application. In 2005 he was granted toleration.

Under pressure from the Aliens’ Registration Office, he decided to apply to the European Commission for his Iraqi passport. The passport was sent by Ahmed’s family via DHL, but never arrived with him.
Ahmed suspects that the shipment was intercepted by the police and handed over to the Aliens Department, but the Aliens Department denies this and is holding him in the home in Vockerode, Saxony-Anhalt. Ahmed has now been trying to return to his home country for more than 10 years.

Numerous asylum seekers have handed in their passports to the foreigners authority. The authorities often claim that these asylum seekers have not yet been identified and that their identification is still in progress
