Date: 24.02.2012 - TIME. 9AM
VENUE: Sozialgericht Dessau-Roßlau, Erdgeschoss, Saal 28, Will-Lohnmann-Strasse 29,06844 Dessau Roßlau

Bases of the Legal Proceeding:

Mr Salomon Wantchoucou had given his best to identify himself. From the beginning he gave correct information about who he is and where he came from (Cotonou Rep of Benin) but the District Officials has refused to accept his true identity.

The Claim of non cooperation by the district authourity is only a strategy to deny him his right and to persecute him for his role in exposing the living situation of refugees in the local government.

Mr salomon Wantchoucou is a member of The Voice refugee Forum and a founding member of "Flüchtlingsinitiative Wittenberg" and has since the past two years brought the abuses of the local government towards refugees to public awareness.

Mr Salomon fled Benin Republic based on an assassination attempt on him as a criticiser of the corrupt government of president Mathieu Kerekou and has been political active as well in Germany. Based on his critics against the bad living situation of refugees, he has always been faced with various forms of threat and intimidation from the local government.

Mr salomon Wantchoucou had all along cooperated with the District to identify himself by the invitation to the Benin republic deportation hearing in Berlin as well as to the Nigerian Embassy. He had equally presented his Birth Registration Certificat fron Benin to the competent authorities of which the foreign office now recognised to be legitimate.

We hereby demand Justice and the Right to Stay for Mr Salomon Wantchoucou.

Activists and Friends are invited to observe this hearing.
