Thank you for your continued support in Kweku’s legal battle to fight deportation from his home.
Kweku released (for now) after 36 days in detention
On Tuesday afternoon 9th October 2018, on the 2nd attempt, Kweku was awarded bail and allowed to return home to Scotland. These 36 days of detention have been exhausting, stressful and unnecessary, not only for Kweku but many friends, family, legal and political representatives and other supporters who have worked tirelessly to get him released. This would have been impossible without the support of everyone so far. We are so grateful!
Kweku and his legal team will be back in Court on October 23rd at the Upper Tribunal Immigration & Asylum Chamber. The purpose of the hearing will be to determine if we will be granted permission to bring a substantive Judicial Review. We will argue why this case has merit and should be heard. No doubt, the Home Office will counter this aggressively so we have work to do.
Even with 74,000 petition signatories, over 130 MPs / MSPs and an amazing 600+ donations for Legal funds, the Home Office remains hell bent on ignoring our voices in pursuit of their unjust immigration policy. Simply put an unjust law is no law at all. With your continued support we will fight this wilful institutional neglect as “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has and it never will.”
