Do not expel Homayon Hatami from this country

This petition had 448 supporters

Homayon Hatami is an extraordinary human being and you can read his touching story here:

On the night of the eighth of May 2013, Mr Homayon Hatami rescued a woman who had jumped from a pier near Eastern Beach in Geelong Victoria. For his action, Mr Hatami was awarded the Royal Humane Society of Australasia Silver Medal for bravery. With the authority of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Second, Queen of Australia, Mr Hatami was also awarded the Commendation for Brave Conduct by The Governor General His Excellency Sir Peter Cosgrove.

Mr Hatami, a karate champion, was selected to represent Australia several times. Unfortunately he could not go because Mr Hatami is an asylum seeker on a bridging visa which will not be renewed when it expires in April. His allowance (tiny though it may have been) has been cancelled.

This attempt to expel Mr Homayon Hatami, despite the recognition he has been awarded by this country, and achievements in sport, stand in stark contrast to a bunch of losers some public servants, and some politicians, thought were worthy of citizenship and/or protection.
