Update on Bita and Mohsen.

HMG certainly likes sending people back to Iran, irrespective of the consequences that they might face: torture or death.

Thankfully the British High Court and European Court of Human Rights have ruled that Bita Ghaedi won’t be deported today.

As with Nadia Arzane and Bashir Foris, HMG in the form of the Home Office are content to kick people out of Britain no matter the consequences, when certainly many of these activists would face the prospect of torture or death at the hands of Ahmadinejad’s regime.

Although the deportation has been delayed, Bita Ghaedi is still not safe and has a further hearing set for the 21st July 2010.

I wish her the best of luck dealing with the Home Office.
