From CDAS page 26/03/2011
Reza was released on bail and arrived back in Sheffield yesterday evening {Friday 25 March 2011}! Reza’s bail conditions will be revised in three weeks time, when he will hopefully be given temporary release whilst the home office take their time deciding on the revision of his claim.

Just to let everyone know, the home office are taking their time deciding about whether to release Reza or not; so his lawyer is lodging an application for bail tomorrow.

<< Reza Yosefi, is a refugee with no nationality and long time resident of Sheffield. >>

My name is Reza Yosefi, I'm 20 years old. I will be forcibly deported to Afghanistan on the 16th March 2011 even though I have no knowledge of Afghanistan and no family or friends there. I have been a refugee all my life.

I grew up in Iran as the son of illegal Afghani refugees. I wanted to go school at 14, but was not allowed to attend. I wanted to work, but when I tried, I was arrested and badly beaten by the police.

At the age of 15, on fear of deportation I was sent to England to try to find a safe place where I could grow up. It took around 7 months to get here and I was often hungry and afraid. At 18 I was refused indefinite leave to remain and now, at 20, I am homeless, have no benefits and I am not allowed to work.

My situation is desperate. Now I am being deported. Please help me to stay in England. I want to study and work and live a normal life. I have friends in Sheffield and have started to make a life of my own here, please help me to continue living here in safety.

With thanks, Reza Yosefi.

Please do not deport Reza.

Please do not send him to a country he does not know.

Please allow him to live in Sheffield where he has made so many friends.
