Refugee’s investigation from the Camp Strike in Suhl – It is unacceptable to insult us and threaten our safety

Protest in Suhl: Refugee Rescued With His Cat Exposes “Dangerous And Unlivable” Conditions In German Camp http://thevoiceforum.org/node/4025

I fled from the Syria massacre to escape to Turkey. After I decided to move to Germany with my family. I do not have a large family, only my wife and my kitten. We got to take a very dangerous trip. We were so lucky to survive from drowning in the Aegean sea between Turkey and Greece. Then, we spent days and days walking or being transferred by buses or trains from Greece to the German borders. We passed 6 countries, one by one, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary and Austria perceptively before reaching Germany in the end. We’ve arrived in Germany on the 15th of September 2015.
The German authorities in Hermsdorf gave us a yellow paper called “Haus Ausweis” with no date of an Interview. Then we were transferred to Suhl camp . In the camp we got shocked of the massive corruption and the bad treatment and discrimination committed by the officers in the camp.

They’ve never cared about all refugees’ health situation or their legal cases. They have the worst medical services and health care. We spent 3 weeks waiting for a medical check.
In contrast to other camps in Germany, Suhl camp officers refused to give us an appointment for asylum interview or to transfer us – me and my wife – to another camp. The worst ever, some officers exploited people’s needs and took money from some refugees in exchange for a transfer permission which makes them able to leave the camp. I asked the officials repeatedly to put my name in the transfer list after 50 days in the Camp, but with no avail. The responsible officer rejected my request. In the last time, she did not allow me to register again under the pretext that I had been registered for more than three times and that was completely not true.

Also, we were exposed frequently to humiliation by managers in the Red Cross. They were telling us: Go back to Syria if you don’t like the situation! In addition to the spread of scabies and hepatitis in the camp. Officials didn’t give any attention to this situation. We organized a sit-in in front of the administration building 20. I was misconducted by the security officers at the camp. They tried to take my mobile because I was filming what’s happening and threatened me to bring the police! .And because I was speaking on behalf of all refugees to the media, officials ignored my case. They denied to transfer us. It became like all refugees come to the camp and are transported to another place and I am convicted to forgetfulness. We’ve signed a request to the Red Cross in Suhl and several media centers, but no one has responded. We spoke to the TV channels such as ZDF channel on the 27th of October 2015. We sent an email with all needed documentations attached but they also did not respond. My friends in the BuzzFeedNews helped me to publish a report about the situation in the camp supported with a testimony of Red Cross employees themselves, some guys in our building and a certificate of deputies of the Parliament of Thuringen. The ministry office said that they are aware of the situation in the dubious Suhl camp.

We were suffering from severe pressure. There wasn’t anybody to help us, no one cared about us. So we decided to leave the camp. Currently I’m working on revealing the truth of the inhuman treatment at Suhl camp. I have a conclusive evidence proving the involvement of an officer taking money from a refugee as well as an evidence of spreading the hepatitis in our building, especially on the first floor.

This is a very general overview of the situation in Suhl camp. At the moment we are staying in Jena area. We don’t want to go back to Suhl camp. We need justice and equity in this camp. It is unacceptable to insult us and threaten our safety.
I want to get my problem solved in accordance with the course of German justice. We need a decent housing for me, my wife and my little kitten. An investigation must be initiated about the administration’s corruption at Suhl camp.

To care for a refugee is a human responsibility. It is Not your choice to be a refugee. To be a refugee is Not a reason for others to take the advantage of your needs.

We are human being at first. It doesn’t matter if they call us “refugees”.
