Iranian beauty queen Melika Rasavi, was denied boarding at the Munich airport by the Condor Airline while on her way to the Miss PowerWoman Competition.
Airline authorities claimed her passport can’t be read well enough. The Iranian beauty queen states that her passport has a recently issued valid Schengen visa, her Passport is not damaged and that this is an excuse regularly used to discriminate travelers with Iranian passports. Miss Iran resides in South Africa, and before heading to the competition she first traveled with her Swedish fiancé to Spain and Sweden to visit her fiancés family. Miss Iran took her next flight to the Dominican Republic to participate at the Miss Power Woman International Beauty Contest and was detained boarding and threatened to be arrested by Airline authorities.
What is happening in Germany? We read headlines about Angela Merkel attacks Donald Trump for targeting ‘people from specific background or faith. Angela Merkel ‘explains’ to Donald Trump the obligations of Geneva refugee convention after his immigration ban. Merkel says fight against terrorism no excuse for U.S. entry ban. Angela Merkel should take a closer look at Condor Airlines at the Munich Airport.
“I’m in shock and worried, how can they discriminate like that?” It began with the Employees of the Condor Arline whom singled me out of the crowd due to my Iranian Appearance, Said Melika Rasavi to the Miss PowerWoman Organization as she announced she will not be arriving to the pageant. With the Police and Protesters Clash over the G20 Summit, setting street fires, looting stores adds further worries to the distressed contestant whom was informed she might be deported to Iran by the Condor Arline employees and management. The Miss PowerWoman Organization stated that “It’s unclear why they’re holding our Iranian contestant, her passport was already scrutinized by the South African, Spanish, Swedish and Dominican Republic Embassies and has a Schengen visa; furthermore, The Passport Control Authorities at Munich Airport specified to the Condor Airline Employees that Miss Razavis Passport is valid and readable according to their expertise.
It is unclear if the Airline or the German Authorities are the ones issuing this discriminatory policy but President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel from six predominantly Muslim countries, including Iran, is currently having an effect outside of the USA.
