Σάμος, 10 Φεβρουαρίου 2022 -- Ενάμισης μήνας έχει παρέλθει από την έκδοση της απόφασης του Διοικητικού Πρωτοδικείου Σύρου επί των αντιρρήσεων κατά κράτησης που το Ελληνικό Συμβούλιο για τους Πρόσφυγες (ΕΣΠ) κατέθεσε υποστηρίζοντας Αφγανό πρόσφυγα, του οποίου η έξοδος από την Κλειστή Ελεγχόμενη Δομή (Κ.Ε.Δ.) της Σάμου είχε απαγορευτεί, ενόσω εκκρεμούσε προς εξέταση η μεταγενέστερη αίτηση ασύλου του.

Ενάμισης μήνας μετά την απόφαση με την οποία το Δικαστήριο έκρινε το μέτρο της απαγόρευσης εξόδου από την Κλειστή Ελεγχόμενη Δομή ως «de facto» κράτηση και δη ότι «ο Διοικητής της ανωτέρω Κ.Ε.Δ. παρανόμως έλαβε το επίμαχο μέτρο (απαγόρευση εξόδου) εις βάρος του Αφγανού αιτούντα». [1]
