Mebrahtu

By Béatrice Guelpa

Mebrahtu reached Switzerland in 2014, at the age of 17, after a perilous journey from Eritrea. That year, 7,700 unaccompanied minors applied for asylum on Swiss soil, of which 717 saw their request granted. Mebrahtu's wasn't. An incomprehensible decision: a genuine paragon of integration, he had even recently taken up an apprenticeship. What happens to those young people who are sent back from Switzerland? Guelpa followed Mebrahtu into his new exile.
