Activist from Pakistan forced to flee his country

Kamal Khan from Pakistan was an activist and was forced to leave his country because of insecurity. His family still lives in Pakistan.

His journey begun on 15 November 2015. He first went to Iran, and then continued to towards Turkey, walking most of the time. He was smuggled in a small boat overcrowded with migrants to Greece. At one point the boat turned over and all of them were suddenly in the cold water. This was a terrible experience but he managed to reach the coast. After spending almost one month in Greece he was smuggled to Macedonia and from there he went to Serbia and finally Croatia.

He arrived to Slavonski Brod WRTC and was almost immediately transferred to the Detention Centre in Ježevo where he spent two months. He applied for asylum and was transferred to RCAS in Zagreb.

In Croatia he feels secure and safe and would like to have a chance to live and work in Croatia with his family. He started to attend Culture Orientation classes organized by IOM and looks forward to attending English and Croatian classes which will be delivered soon.

Kamal advocated better living conditions for Pakistani people but was forced to leave his country because of insecurity.
