ANTI-DEPORTATION campaigners will be holding a vigil at the Home Office in London next Thursday to highlight the case of Aziz Ahmed and his family. Aziz, a political refugee from East Africa, has been held in detention for over a year, in four different centres.
He was refused asylum because he travelled on a false Somali passport. The passport was the only way he and his family could get into Britain. nVigil, 4pm, Thursday 1 August, Home Office, Queen Anne's Gate, London SW1 (St James's Park tube).
Free Aziz Campaign, 45 Carlton Road, Oxford OX2 7SA. Phone 01865 511814 or e-mail email@example.com
AT THE last minute the second attempt to deport the Duman family was stopped. The family still faces uncertainty, as their next appointment in Dover is 7 August. The Kurdish family of Metin and Sahile Duman and their four children, Mazlum (12), Nazim (10), Ali (6) and Inan (2) came to England from Germany three years ago.
