A 37-year-old refugee from Syria, who have been stranded at the airport in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia since march, was on Monday finally allowed to travel on.
It writes the BBC.
The syrian man by the name of Hassan al-Kontar fled from his homeland after he refused to serve in the military. His request for asyltilladelse in Malaysia, however, was rejected by the malaysian authorities, but since his visa had expired, he had to either fly on to another country or leave the airport.
Why had the 37-year-old refugee living of the food, as generous airlines and lufthavnsansatte have given him in the course of the seven months, where he has had to sleep on chairs in the airport and wash in the restrooms.

The 37-year-old refugee has previously been mentioned in several international media, because he has shared videos from the airport on Twitter, which has led to the particular canadian organizations have fought hard to let Hassan al-Kontar get asylum in Canada.
And succeeded, so therefore Monday, where Hassan al-Kontar even shared a video from Taiwan on Twitter, where he could tell his more than 20,000 followers, that he was on the road against Vancouver.
- I know, I look like one from the stone - or the middle ages, says the 37-year-old in the advertisement and refers to his long hair and beard.
- I'm sorry, I haven't been active in the past two months, but today is the future the most important, for I am just now in the Taiwan taoyuan international airport, and in the morning I will reach my final destination, Vancouver, Canada.

- Right now all I need is a hot bath. I've spent enough time in airports, I'm done with airports, it sounded short and cash from the facilitated syrian man, as the canadian media CBC Monday caught him, when he had just landed in Vancouver.
