"Alliance Ngondiop is back in Leicester and we want to say a huge thanks to the many people who have supported her. Let's celebrate big time but also remember that the fight is not over. She has been released as her fresh asylum claim has entered the system and is being considered by the Home Office but also because she applied to the European Court of Human Rights and they intervened insisting that she be given time to defend herself here in this fresh claim. The case is a fresh claim and almost 99% of them get refused but lets pray and hope that Alliance is the 1 in a 100."
Andrew Shefford, for the Campaign

Sixth attempt to remove Alliance Ngondiop


Constant Moussavou: "Good news for now – Late Friday afternoon the Home Office has agreed to indefinitely stay the deportation order, pending the outcome of the judicial review hearing. Constant is very happy and would like to thank all of the people who’ve supported him, especially over the last 2 - 3 days. On behalf of Leicester Civil Rights Movement (LCRM), I’d also like to thank Peter Soulsby, Canon Naylor and his colleagues, NCADC/supporters and all of you for your representations over these last few critical days and hours. Constant is back in Oakington IRC and arrangements will have to be made for his release on bail, a matter that will be progressed by his new solicitors – please let me know if you are able to contribute towards the bail sum. The fight to make sure Constant remains in Leicester still goes on and LCRM will welcome your continued support – our next monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday 26th November at 7:00pm at the TREC office, Epic House, Lower Hill Street, Leicester. We’d be delighted to see you there!" Thanks once again and best wishes.
