Boy smuggled into Spain in suitcase has been allowed to stay.


Adou Ouattara, 8, was on on May 7, found curled up inside a suitcase at a border checkpoint in Ceuta. The suitcase was being taken through a pedestrian border crossing by a 19-year-old woman when a border security scanner detected him. Several
hours later, his father, Ali, was arrested for trying to have the boy smuggled into the country.

Ali and Adou’s mother and sister live in Spain legally but his son lacked permission to join them there because their income was deemed too low. Immigration authorities have now granted him authorisation to live in Spain for one year so he can be reunited with his mother…… Adou says his next mission is to try getting into USA bt it’d b in a Ghana-must-go bag ds time around…..
