UK: Asylum seeker's treatment 'inhumane' — solicitor upon return to UK from Afghanistan

A failed asylum seeker from Afghanistan landed at London Heathrow airport, Sunday, having been evicted to Kabul during the week after a number of attempts to keep him in the Afghan capital by the British government. Samim Bigzad's lawyer says his return is a 'very, very big victory' although condemned his client's treatment at the hands of the UK Home Office as 'inhumane.' «Samim was in... Еще detention for a number of months before this removal attempt, so he was subjected to detention for a number of months, which is an inhumane thing for many, many people, before they then attempted to return him back to Afghanistan, somewhere where he deeply fears,» said Jamie Bell from the legal firm Duncan Lewis. Bigzad, 22, had been living in the UK illegally for two years before being deported, after a failed attempt last month, and says he feared beheading at the hands of the Taliban in his homeland causing a legal battle. «What's so special about his case was that the Home Office removed him in breach of an order. I've said there wasn't anything special about his case until Wednesday morning, but the Home Office have put significant effort and resources into trying to keep him in Kabul, and we're delighted to stand here today, saying we've been successful and he's been returned to the UK,» explained Bell.
