An Algerian illegal immigrant “Mohamed.Z” from Kolea, 41, was detained for six years in the Greece Larissa prison without being sentenced to a conviction or acquittal until now.
According to the story of his family, Mohamed entered Greece through Turkey after he despaired of his miserable social situation in Algeria where he lost his only job before athe succession of a series of shocks and tribulations, pushing him to decide illegal immigration to Greece.
The family of the young man is still unaware of the details of Mohamed’s case, and although it contacted the Algerian embassy in Greece to inquire about the matter and help hand him some documents that the person in question needs in justice, but these repeated attempts were futile and no document was received by Mohamed so far, because the embassy, according to the man’s family confirmed that it had not been given any answers or details or assurances, and the repeated phrase in every telephone conversation with the embassy is: “Be patient, you are not alone who have illegal immigrants in Greek prisons”, and even the lawyer who is responsible for defending Mohamed was unable to communicate with him because he does not master the Greek language.
For their part, Mohamed’s parents live an unbearable life because of their bewilderment and longing for their son and their eagerness to know his mysterious destiny, and their hearts are suffering ache daily.
The parents appeal to any party, whether active associations in Algeria or Greece or the Algerian community living in Greece, to help them reach their son, and the father hopes to visit him in prison if someone is able to help him in Greece because he does not master the Greek language and he is elderly and can not face the difficulties of travel.
Mohamed’s family also asks the Foreign Ministry and the Embassy of Algeria in Greece to take urgent action to save the sons of Algeria from foreign prisons and to help them instead of leaving them to die a thousand times a day.
