A 60-year-old cancer patient from Turkey claimed she was mistreated by German police in Duesseldorf while she was detained for 17 hours. Sevim Karabina had arrived at Duesseldorf Airport from Turkey's Trabzon province on Sunday to visit her children living in city of Siegen. She claims airport police held her on the grounds that she did not have a return ticket or money to buy one. "They kept me in a room with only a chair. I was stuck there for 17 hours," Karabina said. "I was traveling with my daughter. The police questioned why I only had 50 euros in my possession," she said, noting that police apparently suspected she was planning a permanent stay. "I told them I didn't feel like carrying money on me as my daughter already had some but they did not believe me. They then led me to a room where I was kept for hours without water or food," she said.
Karabina was only released on Monday. "I cried and prayed for hours. Turks working there saw my desperation and brought me food," she said. Her son Ekrem Karabina said his mother visited Germany every year and did not encounter any problems in previous visits. He said the police's treatment of her "did not make sense" and they were puzzled about the police's "arbitrary" behavior. "They told us she would be their guest for a while and they would give her everything she needed but I found out she was neither given a bed nor food. They forced her to sit on a chair for hours for no apparent reason. I was told that we need to obtain a document showing we would provide care for her. I went to the Immigration Office but staff there told me I wouldn't need such paperwork for my mother's visit and my mother was already eligible for a three-month stay," he said.
