Few month ago an Iranian asylum -Nader Zarebi – committed suicide in Manchester and many asylums deported back to their countries and many more are at risk of being deported in the future.
Deporting asylum seekers to dictatorship governments specially Iran, is taking place despite the fact that any opposition is violently crushed, dissidents suppressed, executions have increased, unfair trials are norms, freedom of speech and press is denied, and human rights are violated with impunity.
In recent months, several political activists have been executed; a number of young have been hung publicly; hundreds of opponents in different cities and towns have been arrested and imprisoned and the Islamic government is intending to execute some of them. Also some labour activists have been arrested, tortured and imprisoned.
The British government is not concerned that people in Iran are stoned to death, executed, imprisoned, tortured and faced with sexual apartheid on the daily basis. All it wants is to stop asylum seekers from coming here at any cost and violet human right. The fact that people, who flee persecution, are directly or indirectly victims of British or western government’s policies, is not of any concern to them. The current policy of the British government towards asylum seekers is totally arbitrary, irresponsible and inhumane.
