Cancel Tamin Nemati's Deportation and Release Him.

Tamin Nemati is 23 years old. He lives in Swansea, but is originally from Afghanistan. He never knew any life there except the daily terror of living in a war-zone. He first left Afghanistan when he was 9 years old and made his way to the UK in 2007. He applied for asylum, but was refused. In 2010 his appeal was refused and he was told that he had exhausted his right of appeal. He is currently being held in the Campsfield Detention Centre near Oxford.
He is due to be forcibly returned to Afghanistan on flight PVT081 at 00.10 hours on 23 July 2013. If he is sent back to Afghanistan he will not survive there. Since living in Wales he has become a Christian. Two hundred people attended his baptism at Parklands Church. In Afghanistan conversion from Islam to Christianity is punished by the death penalty.
The UK government do not monitor what happens to the people they deport to so called ‘safe’ countries. NGO’s and charities also do very little research into this issue. Yet government ministers claim that it is safe to send people back to Afghanistan. How can they know?
Tamin is a lovely, gentle man. He is thoughtful and caring of others and would be a model citizen. He has made a great many friends in Swansea, particularly among his church ‘family’.
We ask that his deportation order be cancelled and that he be released immediately pending his new asylum claim.
