In France, after saving two children locked in a room burned in Fosses, Aymen risk expulsion. It was in April 2015 that the young Tunisian, who was only 25 years old, took his courage in both hands to save the lives of these cherubim. Arriving in France in 2013, the authorities refused him an “admission to stay for exceptional reasons”.
Aymen takes example on Gassama
While the Malian Mamoudou Gassama was naturalized after saving a child about to fall from the 4 th floor, the prefecture said amenable to review the Tunisian case. It is to believe that he was not as lucky as Gassama for whom the heroic act was filmed and went around the world in the space of a few hours. According to the newspaper Le Parisien, Aymen came to France in 2013 with a degree in computer science. Two years later, he saved two young children, stranded in an apartment whose kitchen was in flames, with the help of his two friends.
A triumph without glory?
After this heroic act, the three men left without making any noise. Despite this, the children’s mother, who had called for help at the time of the fire, did everything possible to find them. Thus, Pierre Barros, the mayor of Fosses gave the Tunisian a medal of the city at a ceremony held a few weeks later. In 2017, he applied for a residence permit, especially in view of the act he had made.
Thus the prefecture told his lawyer that he could have an “admission to stay for exceptional reason”. However, in January, the prefecture said niet for the issuance of paper. Worse, it serves him an “obligation to leave the French territory”.
Now his lawyer is fighting for this eviction document to be canceled.
The authorities finally put an end to cynicism by announcing, Monday, June 4, that Mohamed Ayman Latrous was no longer under threat of deportation. In front of the media coverage of his case Sunday by Le Parisien , the Minister of Territorial Cohesion, Jacques Mezard, said Monday that he wanted him not to be expelled.
