After a lengthy judicial debate, Israel expels a Filipino worker and her 13-year-old son born in Israel. A case that provokes debate and a lot of emotion and could serve as a precedent.

With our correspondent in Jerusalem, Michel Paul

The last judicial appeal was dismissed. Rosemarie Perez and her son Rohan were forcibly placed on board a plane and deported under surveillance after a failed first attempt at the Philippines, the mother's home country.

Rohan, 13, was born in Israel and is educated in a public school. He suffers from social and psychological difficulties. His deportation is unacceptable and could have irreversible repercussions on the young teenager, proclaims his lawyer.

The Interior Ministry in Israel reports that Rosemarie Perez's work visa expired ten years ago. And that since she is in an illegal situation. The father of the child is a Turkish national who has returned to his country.

This affair sparked passions in Israel throughout the summer. Activists and activists on the left believe that it is cruel to send a child to a country where he does not speak the language.

This is the first time a family of immigrant workers has been forcibly evicted from Israel. But a hundred other families in the same case have been arrested and await a court decision on them.
