One-way Ticket To Ghana
Forced Deportation From The E.UStreaming Video - 2006
Peter Ekwiri, a Ugandan, is only one of many people whose applications for asylum in the E.U. have been denied. And like many other blacks from Africa considered "undesirable" by European governments such as Sweden and Germany, he was forcibly deported-but not to his home country. This program uses Ekwiri's case as a springboard to reveal a corrupt system in which E.U. police and immigration authorities clandestinely pay Ghana to act as a transfer point-in reality a dumping ground-for black deportees. And life in Ghana usually means years of imprisonment and an obscure death. The program also investigates other similar cases while exploring the statistical implications of European racial bias against black Africans.
