Stop deportation of Dr. Nadar Abood

This petition had 1,235 supporters

We the undersigned request a very urgent reconsideration of the proposed imminent deportation of Dr. Nadar Abood. Dr. Abood has been taken to Yarl’s Wood IRC. Her removal date has been set for the 26th January.

There are very strong grounds for belief that she faces a strong likelihood of persecution, including arrest, imprisonment and torture, if returned to Sudan.

Dr. Abood faces particular threats, not only because of her Berti ethnic origin, but also because of the efforts she has undertaken to supply medicines to civilians in desperate need of assistance in Darfur, where hundreds of thousands of people are lacking humanitarian assistance because of the blockade imposed by the Government of Sudan.     

Her case is supported by the Sudanese community, Women Asylum Seekers Together and Waging Peace Organization.

A recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights concluded that the proposed return to Sudan of two Sudanese nationals from Darfur would amount to ill-treatment, in this case, given their non-Arab ethnicity and supposed affiliation with opposition groups in Sudan. In both cases, the court referred to the applicant’s ethnic origin which attracted unwanted attention and violence from government authorities and the Janjaweed in Sudan.

We are deeply concerned for the safety of Dr. Abood if you proceed with her deportation to Sudan. We therefore  demand that you halt this imminent deportation and review this case.
