DON’T DEPORT OKAFOR-MEFOR – urge five trade union leaders
This is unprecedented, said campaigners yesterday.
The General Secretaries are: Paul Mackney of UCU (the University and Colleges Union), Mark Serwotka of the PCS (Public and Commercial Service Union), Jeremy Dear of the NUJ (National Union of Journalists), Bob Crowe of the RMT (Rail, Maritime and Transport), Tony Woodley of the TGWU (Transport and General Workers Union).
They have all written to the minister responsible for immigration at the Home Office (Liam Byrne) protesting against both the detention and threatened removal of Alphonsus.
Paul Mackney of UCU said: ‘Alphonsus Uche Okafor-Mefor is presently being held in a detention centre and is due to be flown back to Nigeria where he has been previously detained and tortured.
‘This case is of particular relevance to trade unionists as he was due to speak at a forthcoming “No One Is Illegal” trade union conference, of which UCU is a sponsor.
