Bita Will Be Executed If?
On 15th April, Bita was forcibly removed from her home by UK Border Agency staff and police and was taken to Yarls Wood Detention Centre to await her removal. Bita fled domestic violence in her native Iran and left her country and an abusive marriage in 2007.
She has been peacefully campaigning alongside the PMOI (Peoples Mujahedin Organisation of Iran) in London most notably against the severe human rights abuses committed by proxy agents of Iran operating in Iraq around the Iranian enclave at Camp Ashraf.
In 2009, eleven people were killed by Iraqi security forces after they attacked the camp. The campaign against almost 3000 PMOI at the camp continues.
To date, members of the PMOI continue to be attacked and hunted down by the Mollah regime of Iran and a number have been executed and sentenced to long periods of imprisonment.
The protest takes place outside the British Home Office in London. Bita remains at severe risk not only from the Iranian religious regime, but from male members of her estranged family.
As the day wears on campaigners hear that a British court has refused a fresh claim for asylum stating they are not convinced that her life is in danger, thereby confirming that Government guidance on matters of politics in the Middle East is indeed, hopelessly inadequate.
Bita is scheduled to be deported on Flight BD931 tomorrow 20th April 2010 to Imam Khomeini Airport, Tehran at 7pm. This flight flies out of Heathrow airport terminal 3 every evening.
Carriers are Virgin Atlantic Airways and Air Canada.
