No automatic right of return for widows and orphans of dead Syria fighters, rules court of appealThursday, 28 February 2019 11:06
The two families are now living in the Al-Hol Kurdish refugee camp. The latest decision does not mean the end of minor children being brought back to Belgium, justice minister Koen Geens said. “The Belgian government will continue to work in line with the decision of December 2017 to bring children under the age of ten back to Belgium. Children must not be punished for the deeds of their parents,” he said.
The two women, Abouallal and her sister-in-law Wielandt, left Belgium in 2013 with their husbands Noureddine Abouallal and Said El Mourabit. The men were killed in 2014 while their wives were pregnant. The women then travelled back to Belgium so their children could be born here, before leaving again months later and returning to Syria, where they married again,
