A Liberian asylum seeker was on his way to Brussels, from where he would be deported back to Liberia, when he got the surprising news that he can remain in the Netherlands.

The man had repeatedly appealed against his deportation because of the Ebola epidemic prevailing in his country, but all his requests were denied.

A ruling by the court in Roermond prevented the deportation of the 31 year old man, his lawyer confirmed. Last week the court in Den Bosch ruled that he must be returned to Liberia despite the Ebola epidemic.
