The following is a message from the Child M Must Stay campaign that Greater Manchester Respect Party is proud to support.
Child M and his family, friends and supporters were relieved to hear tonight that a judge at the High Court in Manchester has agreed to consider a Judicial Review application submitted by Child M's legal team. The Judicial Review, to be held at the High Court on Wednesday 22nd September, means that the legal process continues and the family will not be deported tomorrow. The legal team have done a fantastic job and we all hope for the very best outcome. At the same time we are waiting a decision from the European Court of Human Rights tomorrow morning.
The fight to keep Child M and his whole family in the UK continues. We remain deeply concerned about the dangers that the family face if they are forced to return to Iran. They cannot be returned to Iran against their will. As the news came through that they will not be deported tomorrow, Farah cried with relief.
Against all odds, as a campaign, we have succeeded again in preventing the deportation of the family. What now?
Keep up the political pressure. Every single call to ministers, MP's, Trades Unions, councillors and the press has an impact. We need to keep demanding the family are not forcibly returned to Iran and are given the right to permanently remain in the UK. We have been in the situation of a temporary reprieve before. Enough is enough for this family. Until we win, nothing is certain and the family remain in danger. Damian Green has made the wrong decision. We need to tell him.
I can't thank you all enough for everything you've done so far. Please don't stop now.
We will be calling a gathering of friends to show solidarity with the family in Manchester city centre very soon.
