Who was Merhan Karimi Nasseri?
He was initially caught in an immigration trap, unable to enter France and left with nowhere to go. As a result, he became dependent on his peculiar residence and grew more and more famous on a national and international scale.
He addressed himself as “Sir Alfred,” and he made a small area of airport parquet and a plastic bench his territory.
According to French media accounts, Karimi Nasseri, who is said to have been born in 1945, resided in Terminal 1 of the airport from 1988 until 2006, initially out of need because he lacked residency documents and later on on purpose.
The airport official claimed that he had recently resumed residing there.
Inspired “The Terminal” starring Tom Hanks
After Steven Spielberg heard about Karimi Nasseri’s strange tale, it served as the basis for the 2004 film “The Terminal,” which starred Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Hanks portrayed a man who, after his own nation devolves into revolution, is detained at JFK airport in New York.
Karimi Nasseri recently went back to the airport, according to the official, after spending the majority of the money he was paid for the movie.
He had several thousand euros (dollars) on him.
Received refugee status in 1999
Because he was unable to present the necessary documentation, he had been ejected from every other country he had visited.
At the Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport, an unofficial support system developed around him, offering books, a radio, food, and medical assistance.
He received refugee status and the ability to stay in France in 1999.
After being granted the ability to reside in France, he remarked, “I’m not really sure what I want to do, stay at Roissy or leave.” “I can stay here, I have my papers, but I think I should carefully consider all my options before deciding.”
