More bad news following gay Azerbaijani artist Babi B's detention (he is seeking an asylum in the UK).
No Borders South Wales reports:
Babi was moved from Rumney Police station to Campsfield Immigration Removal Centre at 4am this morning (thursday) from where some of Babi’s friends have been talking to him on the phone and receiving texts from him.
Babi has been able to find fellow prisoner and No Borders supporter Jean Pierre Gueutchue, who is also in Campsfield and has been able to offer some advice on coping with life in a detention prison, as well as some much-needed solidarity and friendship.
Babi was able to tell us of his removal directions:
“J28 8pm 20th September My deportation flight to Hellbaijan, Pliz all stop me here”
Babi is very distressed, and is fears the worst:
“PlizPLIZpliz i wontWONTwont GO back. i WANT die HERE THAN AZERBAIJAN. HELL O FAKING 21st Century! Can I stay in UK? Can I live 5 year happy here? FAK THE LAW MAKER! humanity”
It seems that the proposed deportation of Babi will take place on Azerbaijan Airlines flight J20008 at 8pm on Saturday 20th September from Heathrow.
What you can do to help
Please contact Azerbaijan Airlines to register your disapproval at their willingness to deport Babi.
