IDC student from South Sudan deported to Juba

A South Sudanese man who was enrolled as a student at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliyah before he was deported to Juba earlier this year, returned last week on a student visa, and was deported from Ben-Gurion airport back to South Sudan, The Jerusalem Post has learned.
William Akon returned to Juba in September on a voluntary deportation, after spending nearly five years in Israel. Not long after returning, he and a fellow deportee, former Tel Aviv University student Sunday Dieng, took their savings and moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where they applied for student visas at the Israel Embassy. They then both decided to stay in Addis Ababa until they received their visas, due to the difficulties and cost of traveling back and forth to Juba.
