Thirty-four-year old man from Gambia tore and ate his passport to avoid departation from France, Le Figaro.
The man who had arrived to France and had intended to get an asylum less than two month ago should have had to be repatriated from Toulouse on September 15.
However, he was in the state of "extreme fuss" and did not want to enter the plane.
While going through the passport checkpont he pulled away the pages with his photograph and biographical data and swallowed them.
Moreover, the passenger started to shout at the policemen and spitted on them. Thus, the captain refused to let him on board as of security concerns.
On Tuesday, the French court sentenced him for two months for violation of the deportation procedure. It is reported he will be subsequently deported.
