Tunisian Fathi Ben M. was arrested in December for selling drugs on the Warsaw bridge in Berlin.
The drug dealer was caught red-handed, but was released – despite the fact that the man, who was a rejected asylum seeker, had been able to leave the country and had previously gone underground.
For years, the 43-year-old has managed to evade police and defy his deportation orders. Only last weekend he was arrested once more. German authorities say that this time he will be kicked out of the country, Berliner Zeitung reported.
Fatih Ben M. entered Germany illegally in 2014 and was transferred to Bautzen in Saxony. There, the Tunisian drug runner had managed evade the police to avoid his deportation four times. He later moved to Berlin.
When the police in Berlin released him from custody, state authorities in Saxony notified them that the illegal immigrant as a national danger, alleging ties to radical extremist Islamists.
The German government has said that it would step up the deportation of migrants whose applications for asylum have been rejected. But the deportation of migrant men has caused outrage from human rights groups and German opposition parties.
Activists, some of them themselves refugees or migrants, have blocked the deportations of refugees and migrants, also at Schoenefeld airport near Berlin.
The left-wing coalition government in Berlin has been vocal in its opposition to forced deportations and has resisted the German federal government on the issue.
There are currently an estimated 53000 rejected asylum seekers living in the German capital and 11 800 of those are candidates for forced deportation.
The case of Fathi Ben M. had caused a great deal of commotion because of the conflicting assessment of the dangerous nature of the man.
The police in Berlin have claimed that he is just an ordinary drug dealer who had been caught with only a “very small amount of narcotic drugs”. Although the Federal Office for Refugees had ordered the deportation of the man for the first time already in October 2014, the deportation ultimately failed because no one knew where Fathi Ben M. actually was.
After his recent arrest, the police said on Saturday: “All further measures to secure a deportation are currently coordinated between the police Saxony and the police Berlin.”
The Tunisian’s arrest took place in Directorate 5, the area of Neukölln and Kreuzberg. When exactly and where the arrest took place, the Berlin police would not say despite repeated demands.
“The procedure was undertaken by the Saxon police,” said a spokeswoman. But the responsible police in Chemnitz could give no further information when contacted by the Berliner Morgenpost.
He had pretended to be a Tunisian with the authorities, then an Algerian, Moroccan or Libyan. Altogether he used 20 different alias identities according to the police – more than previously known through a court order.
In April 2017, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) rejected his asylum application as “manifestly unfounded”. He will now be transferred to Saxony and deported.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
