A man attacked by an OQTF occupies a house
In Val-de-Marne, a woman saw her home occupied by an OQTF target. The man admitted he entered the country to seek money and a place to sleep, but also to attract police attention and be sent back to his country of origin.
A surprising affair. While she was outside her property for repairs and checking the images from her own security cameras, a Val-de-Marne resident noticed that a naked man had broken into his home and was walking around it.
The owner of the squat immediately called the police, who came to arrest this 26-year-old man of Tunisian origin. He had stated that he was obliged to leave the territory (OQTF) but that his country of origin refused to take him in.
“When I first saw him, it was a shock. He broke in, apparently with the help of an iron bar, he settled down and went about his business,” explains the shocked homeowner.
The man acted intentionally to speed up his OQTF
The man in an irregular situation explains that he entered the house to look for money, a place to sleep, but above all to attract the attention of the police. In fact, this man, who has been the subject of an OQTF since last November, wants to be sent back to his homeland in Tunisia, although this procedure has never been successful.
“The police told me that they would take him into custody but then release him because he had false papers and that they couldn’t get much out of it,” said the owner of the property, disappointed.
Since then, the owner no longer dares to go into her house alone. And with good reason, the man assures that he will try again as long as he is not sent back to his country of origin. A situation that is happening more and more in France, since according to the latest information report of the Senate on the migration issue, chaired by François-Noël Buffet (Les Républicains), barely 5.7% of almost 62,000 pronounced OQTFs had been executed in the first half of 2021.
The owner has now called in a company to assess the burglary damage and the bill is high. According to experts, the bill would amount to a total of almost 7,000 euros. A traumatic experience that she will not soon forget.
