It’s been reported that Norway will in fact deport 21-year-old student, Adán Cortés Salas, after he interrupted the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony with a blood-spattered Mexican flag, last Wednesday December 10, to bring attention to the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa. The Foreign Affairs student was expelled from the country after Immigration Services (UDI) thought his application for political asylum lacked justification. However, during a taped phone call, Salas assures his process has been full of irregularities, and expedited in an extremely sudden manner.

Adán Cortés Salas’s brother, Austin, took to his Facebook page yesterday, to inform his and Adán’s friends that his brother was being deported: “My brother just informed us that his deportation will be taking place tomorrow, while the last news we’d had of him, was that he was going to have a hearing on Monday where his legal process would be solved, but his juridical process did not take place and suddenly we find out he is coming back to Mexico tomorrow,” read the post.

The UNAM student had told his brother he planned the interruption of the Nobel ceremony because he believed President Enrique Peña Nieto was trying to buy time until the Iguala case was forgotten, but that he wanted to keep it in the news. Cortés had been traveling through several countries and had also displayed the flag in Costa Rica, letting people know they should not forget.
