Help Iraqi asylum seekers!

Submitted by Anon on 16 May, 2006 - 11:39

Campaigners against the deportation of Iraqi asylum seekers recently received the following information from a ministerial answer to a parliamentary question by Labour MP Neil Gerrard:

“After the resumption of air services to Iraq, from 1 September 2005 the National Asylum Support Service has withdrawn support from 5,148 unsuccessful asylum seekers who were claiming support under section four of the same Act, as they were not fully satisfying the eligibility criteria, for example by not taking reasonable steps to leave the United Kingdom.”

The campaign had its last meeting on Monday 8 May and will be meeting again soon. For more information, contact Dashty Jamal of the International Federation of Iraqi Refugees by ringing 07734 704 742 or emailing d.jamal@ntlworld.com
