Don’t send refugees to bloody Iraq

This video is called Deported Iraqi refugees sent back to UK – 16 Oct 09.

Translated from Novum news agency in the Netherlands:

The Netherlands must not send Iraqis back to Baghdad now. The situation in Baghdad is too unsafe, Pro Refugees in the Netherlands says. The organization has sent a letter to Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin (CDA).

This Wednesday, a group deportation of rejected asylum seekers to Iraq has been planned. Pro Refugees claims however that it is irresponsible to send the Iraqi refugees back to the capital. “Ever since the elections in March in Iraq, the situation has only worsened. There are many dead and wounded, including many civilian casualties.”
