Slave in Tunisia: An Ivorian migrant’s ordeal (Part 1)
Since the summer of 2018, more and more migrants have left Tunisia to make the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean. On the other side of the sea, Europe is becoming increasingly frustrated. Still, it seems Tunisia does little to prevent these journeys in the first place. Faced with a major economic and social crisis of its own, the government has let the migration problem slide -- it has yet to put a national asylum policy in place and has next to no infrastructure for migrants. InfoMigrants went to Tunisia where we met Jeanne d’Arc. For several months, the Ivorian migrant was a slave for a wealthy Tunisian family. Today, she feels completely abandoned and faces an uncertain future.
