Interview with Yassine Ferchichi

Yassine Ferchichi is a Tunisian national who fled persecution from his country of origin. He was arrested and sentenced in France on terrorism charges. His conviction was largely based on statements made by M’hamed Benyamina under torture in Algerian custody. In 2009, Yassine Ferchichi was deported to Senegal in opposition with a decision of the European Court of Human Rights. Since then, he has been living homeless without any legal document.

What followed next was a horrifying ordeal in the Kafkaesque story that is Guantanamo. After being held without charge for over eight years Saber Lahmer was eventually released and resettled in France.
