Thread: MY PASSPORT IS CONFISCATED, PLS HELP???

  1. #1
    Guest
    Dear Sir,

    I am an American Citizen and a permanent resident in Indonesia, which I aquired thru my marriage to a local twenty years ago and I have four children 1, 9, 14 and 17 years of age.

    Three years ago the local Immigration Department filed a case of Deportation against me. Apparently I was never given a arraignment or a trial proper, simply a straight Deportation Order?

    Fed up with all the nonsense I decided to pack up my bags and decided to leave for the States, leaving my family behind. Surprisingly, at the airport I was apprehended by the Immigration officers and they prevented me from leaving the country claiming that I have a fake American Passport and that they would have to verify it.

    Now it has been almost 7 months and my Passport has not been returned to me?

    My question to you is it not illegal for them (the Immigration) to hold my passport? Is there a period (time) they could hold the passport and since I do not have a Passport I cannot leave the country, so would that be called Illegal Detention, if not what?

    Respectfully,

    Johnson Ang, Jr

    I would think that you would be able to leave the country anyway, even here in the USA nobody cares if you leave, they only care if you try to come back... what about using your US drivers lisence or other form of ID on an American airline of some type?

    (I am assuming that you have family that can provide a birth certificate or something, and/or some other method to prove citizenship upon arrival)

    also is there an american consulate and or embassy there, if so they should be able to replace your passport.

    I UNDERSTAND THE EMBASSY IS CLOSED THERE, WHY NOT CONTACT THE UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION, AS I HAD A FRIEND WHO WAS IN A SIMILAR SITUATION IN THE PHILIPPINES HE CONTACTED THE UN AS THE EMBASSY TOLD HIM TO WAIT FOR THE PASSPORT.

    BUIT I HOPE SOME IMMIGRATION LAWYERS WILL READ YOUR MESSAGE AND SUGGEST YOU WHAT TO DO, HOPEFULLY.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    I am sure these people will be in big trouble I believe they shold be charged for Human Rights Violation. I think your case asides from an unlawful Deportation Case you are now being illegally detained that calls for arbitary detention.

    Please lets help our fellow man, come on you guys.
