Iraqi asylum seekers deported from Britain
16 September 2006
The Blair government’s decision to circumvent injunction orders of the High Court and forcibly extradite 32 Iraqis back to the northern Kurdish region of Iraq marks a new low in the anti-democratic measures enacted by Home Secretary John Reid.
The fear of returning to a region swamped in violence provoked some to inflict self-harm, and 15 attempted suicide. Several needed stitches, and one took an overdose.
This is the first time removals will take place as a matter of policy while there are still legal challenges outstanding.
