Isa Muazu

Isa Muazu entered the UK in 2007 on a visiting visa and overstayed, he made an application to leaglize his stay in 2011 which was rejected. He then claimed asylum in July 2013 but was then detained so he could be fast-tracked and immediately removed from the UK. By the time his claim against unlawful detention was heard on 17th October, he had no travel documents.

At this point he was ill, suffering from mental illness, delusions and weight loss. A removal was attempted to deport him at the end of November, by which time he was in a critical condition.

Why should we help Isa?

Isa fled Nigeria because he fears persecution from Boko Haram, who he defied by refusing to join their ranks. He says the group killed some of his family members and he is at high risk of being killed too. Helping him beat deportation could save his life.

Isa has been on hunger strike for over 90 days and is critically ill and suffering from metal illness, delusions and severe weight loss. He is in life threatening condition and says he’d rather die than be deported back to Nigeria. It is imperative we make the Home Office see that by deporting Isa, they are ignoring his human rights and going against the European Convention on Human Rights, which prevents the UK sending someone to a country where there is a real risk that they will be exposed to torture, or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Teresa May has a plan to deport people first and allow claims later, which make it impossible for refugees to launch a successful case.

People who are imprisoned in detention centres are often separated from family who are born in the UK or have lived here for many years. Currently, 3000 people are in detention centres around the country, and the numbers and rising. They are at risk of inhumane treatment and death in UK custody.

Please mention the following points:

1. Isa is now critically ill and on the verge of dying- to deport him in this condition would be inhumane and Teresa May will have blood on her hands should he die in detention or in the process of deportation.

2. Deporting Isa back to Nigeria will put him in danger of being killed by Boko Haram, in which case, she will also have blood on her hands

3. Rejecting Isa’s asylum application goes against the European Convention on Human Rights, which prevents the UK sending someone to a country where there is a real risk that they will be exposed to torture, or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

4. Isa is recognised as a refugee as he has left Nigeria and fears going back,therefore he should be granted asylum under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.

5. 19 people have died in immigration detention centres in the last 25 years, Isa nor any other refugee should be number 20 and the Home Office should give an explanation for these deaths
