Cancel Odette Sefuko's forcible detention and removal to Uganda or DRC


ODETTE SEFUKO is from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). She came to claim asylum in the UK because her life was threatened. She was imprisoned, tortured and raped for trying to help women who had been raped and because she is Bunyamulenge; an ethnic group that have been persecuted in DRC for many decades. Many of Odette's family have also been murdered. Odette is seeking asylum under the 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees, her claim was refused by the tribunal court, her appeal was also refused. The Home Office do not want to accept that Odette is Congolese, despite reputable evidence. Odette has recently been detained and may be deported to Uganda, where she might face imprisonment, torture, rape or death. Please sign if you wish to support this campaign.

Dear Home Secretary, we, the undersigned are concerned citizens who strongly object to the unjust refusal of Odette Sefukos asylum claim and demand you reconsider your decision and offer her protection from arrest/rape and/or murder by not deporting her to Uganda or DRC and granting her leave to remain in the UK
