A gay and HIV positive Ugandan is being forcibly taken sent back to Uganda anytime now after losing his appeal for Asylum.

He could now face 14 years imprisonment, torture and if a new bill is passed possible execution when he is sent back.

 

Alex Elliott from T.I.G.R.O. called Campsfield House Removal Centre where he was being detained to see how he was doing and was told he had been taken to the Airport and is currently on his way back to Uganda.

He is currently being held at Brook House Immigration Removal Centre near Heathrow Airport and could be sent back to Uganda at any time.

'It makes me feel sick' Alex Elliott said.

The man said a couple of days ago that he was very frightened based on what they do to Gay people particularly with HIV.

 

Please sign this petition to condemn the decision of the UK Government and Border controls and tell them to immediately put proper procedures in place to protect LGBT Asylum seekers who are in danger if sent back to their own country

I am very saddened to learn that J., Case Number S1319898 is going to be forcibly returned to Uganda by the UK Government and Border Agency despite the fact he faces serious danger.

This gay and HIV positive Ugandan said he was very scared because of what happens to people like him in Uganda

In Uganda as you know he could face up to 14 years imprisonment and with the new bill which could be come law at anytime would makes things much worse. Including life imprisonment for LGBT people and execution particularly with LGBT people with HIV.

I write to you and ask that you immediately bring in proper procedures to deal with LGBT Asylum Seekers in the United Kingdom and stop sending people to face danger in their own country.

There was suppose to be such procedures but they are sadly and obviously being ignored by the UK Border Agency

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THE VOICES OF 1187 PEOPLE WHO HAVE MADE AN EFFORT TO SIGN THIS PETITION AND VOICE THERE SERIOUS CONCERN.

I look forward to your response
