Pakistani family face deportation after their son is labelled a terrorist for carrying a cricket bat – Telegraph

In the summer, Mehdi Nemmouche, a French-born Islamist who had returned from fighting in Syria, was arrested and charged with the murders of four people after the attack on the Jewish museum in Brussels.

Despite Assim contacting the police, the entire Abassi family of seven has lost its right to live in Belgium after the Pakistani embassy in Brussels sacked his father, a diplomat, for damaging Pakistan’s reputation.

“We got a call from the embassy saying give us your passports,” said Mr Abassi.

“We’ve lost the privilege of living in Belgium. I’ve lost my education. I’ve lost everything.”
