LIVING IN LIMBO UNCERTAINTY OF A REFUGEE RELEASED FROM DETENTION. A 23 years old immigrant from Ghana just arrives from detention after 18 months and, for now, will stay in the Tent Village. As he originates from a "safe country", his application for humanitarian protection has been rejected and he has nowhere else to go. Malta does not have an airline which flies to Ghana and cannot afford to send him back.
