Refugees

Issue No. 1808

THE DUMAN family's claim for asylum was refused on Thursday 4 July. They are to be deported to Germany on Wednesday morning, 10 July. The Dumans' solicitor is making further representations. The family had left Turkey because, as Kurds, they had suffered years of harassment.

A vigorous campaign by the children's schools and family supporters helped the local MP, Bridget Prentice, to intervene in the case. We are determined not to rest until the Duman family are allowed to remain. Keep up the pressure on the Home Office.
