May 20, 2013 — The petition to get Abdul out of detention and halt his deportation has now reached 3,000 signatures, a magnificent achievement in just over a week.
It was great to see everyone at the gathering during the Sunday morning kickabout by Abdul's football team, FC Kolektivo Victoria.
Towards the end of the gathering, we were informed that Abdul was being moved from Morton Hall to a centre near to Gatwick Airport. The matter is now with Abdul's legal team and we are waiting to see the outcome of the legal process.
24/05/13 Abdul is still in detention near Gatwick Airport. We wait to hear the outcome of the appeal his barristers have submitted before the courts.
