We’re very disappointed by the latest news from the Home Office in a case that we are currently working on. Iram Shazadi and her son Muhammed Ali have had their application for asylum turned down and appeals have been unsuccessful.
Our Director, and the solicitor working on the case, Sanjeev Sharma explains:
“This case is another example of the Home Office creating a hostile environment for immigrants. This mother and son have had nothing but obstacles in their path since their escape from Pakistan. Despite their asylum claim not being accepted the medical condition of both of them speaks volumes and the risk to their health if returned to Pakistan. The Home Office need to start showing some compassion and humanity to genuine cases that are backed up with objective medical evidence like this one.”
Thanks to the media including the BBC for highlighting this case, we will continue to do what we can to keep them safe.
Our solicitors take on many cases on behalf of families who are facing difficulties claiming asylum and immigration issues. The recent Windrush scandal has shown how hard it can be to make a case, even when you do have the right to live in this country.
If you know anyone who needs advice on asylum, visas or immigration, please ask them to get in touch.
