JENGbA have had a call from Edward Conteh who is currently being held at a deportation Centre Brook House Gatwick. He has been given a ticket to Brussels for a flight leaving 6th October. He has no family or contacts in Brussels and as far as he knows he is not being given accomodation.
Edward is a particularly vulnerable young man who was 200 yards away with Joe Appiah running away from boys attacking them when an incident resulting in a fatality on the other side of the park. Edward's deportation hearings were a disgrace - JENGbA campaigners attended many - he was low risk until a new Probation officer he never met decided he was high risk based on 'intel' that he had NO evidence of. JENGbA found him a deportation lawyer and she is working with a criminal lawyer pro bono to try to stop his deportation.
But this is where the JENGbA campaigners need to take a stand - can everyone write to the Home Office James Brokenshire MP firstname.lastname@example.org and demand that Edward is allowed a chance to appeal his conviction for a crime he did not commit.
Also send Edward cards of support so the detention centre know we are on to them.

If anyone has any contacts with deportation/immigration campaigns please let us know - we might need to go and do a protest also - perhaps this Friday.
