Despite fleeing oppression in Iraq, Sabah Abdul Rahman Kasim was arrested by what he thought were police officers, but were in fact officers from Borders and Immigration Agency (BIA), on a bus in Manchester (Bus no. 17) at 3:30pm on Saturday 8 September 2007. He was essentially kidnapped and sent to a holding centre, possibly Dallas Court Reporting Centre, in Salford.
North West Asylum Seekers Defence Group (NWASDG) demands Sabah be released immediately. Seeking asylum is not a crime. Please call Harmondsworth IRC on 020 8283 3850 and ask why Sabah is being detained, and for him to be released immediately. Do not allow them to fob you off by claiming it is not their responsibility.
