The expulsion commission of the Lille court (North) issued an unfavorable opinion on Wednesday September 27 for the expulsion of Sana, a 24-year-old Algerian repatriated from Syria last January, franceinfo learned from a judicial source.

The prefect of the North had filed an expulsion request, considering that it represented “a serious threat to the French Republic”. The prefect Georges-François Leclerc himself appeared before the expulsion commission of the Lille court on September 13 to defend this expulsion.

Arrival at age 15 in an area controlled by theIslamic State

The expulsion commission of the Lille court ruled that it is not established that the presence of Sana on the national territory represents a threat to public order, noting in particular that no reprehensible act can be accused of the young woman since January.

The young woman, originally from Roubaix but who does not have French nationality, was taken to an area controlled by the Islamic State by her mother in 2014, at the age of 15, with her siblings, then married immediately to a jihadist Belgian, with whom she will have two daughters. She was repatriated to France in January with her two daughters.

Back in France, after five years there then four years in the Roj jihadist prison camp, controlled by the Kurds, the young woman hopes to stay in her country of birth, but does not have nationality: her mother has refused to ask her as a teenager, making her today an Algerian national in an irregular situation.
