"There is no reason to think that it's not act of a suicide", declared the public prosecutor of Marseilles, Jacques Beaume. A Tunisian fellow-prisoner, Mr. Saidi, cannot explain what happen. "We do not understand what occurred. During half an hour, the other man called helps and nobody came ", it told by telephone since the center of retention. "If the helps had arrived earlier, perhaps that one could have saved it". The prefecture of the Rhone delta did not wish to make "any comment".

"We do not know the reasons of its act, however that highlights the nonsense and the violence of a system which locks up people who did not do anything of other to want to improve their living conditions while coming to France", estimated Cimade in an official statement. The Network Education Without Borders (RESF) called with a gathering in front of the center of retention, Sunday midday, to denounce "the responsibility for the government which leads these people to despair".

The decree of taken back at the border taken in its opposition was applicable before December 9. The man, who did not speak French, had not engaged of recourse against the decree, still specified Cimade, which ensures a legal support the abroads.

This suicide caused a sharp emotion among the few 90 other foreigners held in the center of retention. Saturday evening, some refused to eat. Sunday, always "shocked", they denounced the lack of average materials, medical and especially the absence of consideration."Kazim committed suicide because one treats us like dogs", has carried a man of Algerian extraction, held for nine days."Since my arrival 18 days ago, I saw neither doctor, neither psychologist, nor psychiatrist", testified Mr. Saidi.

Mondher Sfar, member in Paris of the Collective of the Tunisian community, also drew the attention to the case of Bilal Chouhir, a Tunisian arrested in Lyon and under the blow of a "completely unfounded decree of expulsion". This father of five children living in France, is "cardiac and diabetic and wrongly retained in Canet", explained Mr. Sfar. He also evokes the case of an Egyptian "epileptic and asthmatic" for whom the medical follow-up "leaves something to be desired".

Yeah, yeah, I know, they stole the bread from ours children's mouth…
