A 28-year-old Frenchwoman died Tuesday, December 14 of diabetes in Syria and leaves behind her six-year-old daughter in the Roj camp, lawyer Marie Dosé announced on Wednesday December 15 at a press conference. The lawyer had been asking for her medical repatriation since March 30, 2019. She will file a new complaint against the French state to demand in particular the return of the children of jihadists.

“France made Sarah [l’enfant] an orphan girl. We have come to this “, denounces the lawyer, who has sent three emails to the Elysee and the Quai d’Orsay since Tuesday, December 14, still unanswered. The girl has no psychological support, she is alone and without support in the Roj camp while her mother has been buried.

This young woman left for Syria in 2014 and gave birth to a girl in this country in 2015. In February 2019, she went to the Roj camp. Marie Dosé asked for her repatriation for the first time a month later by sending several letters to the Élysée and the Quai d’Orsay which remained unanswered. After several reminders, the lawyer filed a complaint with the Court of Justice of the Republic in April 2021, but her request was deemed inadmissible.

During this time, the health of the young woman, diabetic and insulin-dependent, worsened. She lost 10 kg in a few months. “The French authorities could not have been more informed that this woman was going to die if she was not repatriated”, estimates Marie Dosé, denouncing the arrival of a delegation to see the children and who “let her die on the spot”. While this woman was under an arrest warrant, “She could have been saved if she had been repatriated. France has chosen to take this risk”, she denounces.

According to Marie Dosé, less than 200 children and 80 French women are in the Roj camp and could be repatriated. “I remind you that no child has been repatriated since January 2021”.
