CHARTER FLIGHT TO PAKISTAN 14-02-2018

The Unity Centre understands that there is a charter flight booked to Pakistan on Wednesday 14th February 2018 from an undisclosed location. We are in contact with a number of people held in Harmondsworth IRC detention prison who have been informed that they will be removed by charter on this date. Among them are someone who has an appeal pending on an LGBT asylum claim. Some were detained in the last week – a pattern we see every time there is a charter flight – people detained on the basis of their nationality in order to fill seats on the flight. There is no justice in this inhumane system of forced removals and mass deportation.
