- The Right Honourable Jacqui Smith M.P., Secretary of State for the Home Department
- United Kingdom
Sadly, the predictable death of Ama Sumani has rendered this petition redundent. However, I should like to sincerely thank all those who took the trouble to sign it and try to correct this barbaric behaviour by the British authorities.
The terminally ill Ama Sumani was forcibly removed from hospital, where she was undergoing dialysis as a result of kidney damage due to myeloma, and immediately deported to Ghana.
This action should be reversed with the utmost urgency.
We the undersigned consider the lack of compassion shown in the deportation of Ama Sumani to be a stain on the honour of the United Kingdom and call on the Home Secretary to allow Ms Sumani to re-enter the UK to continue her medical treatment.
