"In a moment of strong intoxication, and mental illness committed Mahmod Abo Al filfil, 33, his life's mistakes. "
"the Fire he made was the cost 2 years in prison – soon 4.5 years later he is still locked up."
"– It feels unfair, inhuman and unreasonable, " he says to Aftonbladet from within Sollentuna prison. "
"a Lot has happened since december 3, 2016. "
"Donald Trump has been sworn in as president and harvested a number of scandals, Sweden has been involved in both terrorism and evighetslång form a government and my own son has gone from newborn to the very lively talked a 2.5-year-old."
"For Mahmod Abo Al filfil time has stood still. His own dreams of wife, children and a secure job has been put on hold."
"Despite serving his prison sentence, he has soon been two years and five months in detention – without any idea of when he can be free. The average time spent in detention for all adult persons to be expelled is 32 days. "
"– I hate those green clothes. I refuse to see myself as a criminal, even if the police do it, " says Mahmod and tugs at the sleeve on the Sollentunahäktets militärgröna fleece sweater. "
"at the same time, he is aware that it is a criminal act that ultimately led to the unclear existence. "
" I remember nothing of the fire. I was completely gone when it came, the feeling was mentally ill and abused alcohol. I think I thought I would take the life of me. "
"Then, in december 2016, were Mahmod in Lycksele, where he worked as a cleaner at a restaurant. "
"the Day had begun with a for Mahmod devastating decision: His protection was not determined and his application for a residence permit was rejected. "
"the News he dealt with the drinking of spirits, particularly whisky. "
"At 16.22 added an alarm to the SOS on fire and five minutes later the emergency services on site and was able to put out the fire. Brandhärdarna in the restaurant had started after the liquor poured out in different places, and then ignited. No one was injured, but the smoke could be dangerous for residents in the vicinity of the fire been allowed to continue. "
"In the district court testified a paramedics. He had seen Mahmod come out of the restaurant with a bottle of liquor in his hand and put on a pallet."
"A police officer also testified. To him had Mahmod said that he was mentally ill and wanted to die. "
"”Let it burn, let it burn”, had Mahmod said, and sprinkled the alcohol from the bottle in the direction of the smoke from the doorway to the pub. "
"I have done wrong, and I apologize, but I have served my punishment," says Mahmod in the day. "
"there Is no end date."
"For the fire, he was sentenced to three years in prison and deportation. "
"the Punishment he had been sitting of 3 december 2016, when two-thirds of the sentence served, and in Sweden normally goes free. Then would expulsion be enforced and Mahmod not return to Sweden until december 29, 2024. "
"It is now instead the only concrete date that he can relate to in relation to his own freedom. "
"for the Expulsion of Palestine is very unclear. "
"The first obstacle was to Mahmods pass, which was with the Swedish authorities, had gone out. To get a new one from the Palestine proved to be a slow story. "
" the Police claim that Mahmod not cooperation to produce a new one, but it was he himself who early on called the Palestinian embassy and tried to arrange it, says his legal representative to the newspaper Aftonbladet. "
"for several years, she has fought to get him released from the repository. "
"Eleven times, the police have extended the förvarstiden and as many times has the registrar appealed to the migration court. Where have you been on the police line and refused to Mahmods request. A handful of times have you appealed to the migration court of appeal – with the same result. "
"The latest rejection from the migration court came as recently as Wednesday."
"– It feels like butting up against the bedrock, Sometimes I'm wondering if they even read what I wrote in my appeal. The only thing he has left in Palestine is his old co-morbidity in the parents, " says the legal representative as in the article wants to be anonymous. "
"the Documents from Palestine, clear."
"In november last year was Mahmods travel documents, after years of waiting in the port. Now wait, instead of to ”accept from Israel”, by the Swedish border police. "
"– Israel does not want more palestinians there, " says Mahmod who also is worried about what the security service, the Mossad will do if he is deported. "
" In Syria, I participated in a political struggle to tell if the harsh restrictions that they terroriserande occupiers facing people on a daily basis. My political activities are thoroughly described in detail to the Swedish migration board. "
"the border police claims in its assessment that Mahmod constitutes a flyktrisk, he does not set out when and if the expulsion should be carried out."
"Nonsense, mean one of Mahmods cousins who have lived in Sweden since 1989. "
" Where would he fly anywhere? If he is released, he must stay with me or my brother or my mother. We love him and he'll get food, shelter, clothing, everything he needs. "
"his Cousin works as a social worker in the middle of Sweden and is critical of the police have not had more contact with relatives. "
" They've called me once 3-4 years ago, and still nothing happened. The relevant is that he served his sentence and is damn regretful. Why do they keep him?"
"Aftonbladet has been in contact with Magnus Drahosch, as the latest occasions have been the one who made the decision to Mahmod shall remain in custody. "
"I can't comment on individual cases," says Drahosch. "
"Have no permissions limited"
"In the prison could Mahmod study and read, among other things, in several math and English classes and all levels of SFI (Swedish for immigrants). In the autumn of 2016, he could also write the test in Swedish, with good results. "
"Then he was taken into custody, the possibility ceased and Mahmod recently called to sit in detention in the Sollentunahäktet to avoid the rowdy mood of the Storbodaanstalten in Rosersberg outside Stockholm."
"In the custody goes, it is neither to study or to get the permissions limited. Despite ovetskapen when captivity can end is Mahmod not bitter. "
"– I love Sweden, which I say not only for that lick ass. Probation has helped me to study, and the Swedish society helps people on the run from other countries all the time. "
" I do not think it is fair to to judge a country or a system that few people keep me locked up. "
"the Dream to remain in Sweden, but is right now not the most important. Mahmod is rather free in Palestine than locked up in Sweden."
"– I ask not really help. What I want is what is mine, thus the freedom and joy, and it is only possible to get by justice. "
