Dozens of refugees go on hunger strike in Brussels

More than 40 Iranian asylum seekers began a hunger strike against their deportation at a deportation camp in Brussels airport on 1 April.

Among the refugees are Ahwazi Arab law graduate Hussein Sanjari (26) and his sister Fatima Sanjari, who have been kept in the camp for more than six months, according to the Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement in Ahwaz.

The asylum seekers insist they will face persecution if they were extradited to Iran. Ahwazi Arab political dissidents, including repatriated refugees, have been imprisoned, tortured and killed in Iran. They include the UNHCR registered refugee Muhammad Ali Amouri, who is currently facing execution two years after he was refouled from Iraq.
