Olga Noveselova must stay!

NiShaguNazad | 25.01.2011 20:42 | Migration | Liverpool | World

Olga Novoselova, a prominent member of the Russian-speaking community in Merseyside, has been arrested for an alleged breach of UK immigration law and is currently being held at the Borders Agency detention centre at Yarlswood. Please support her.

Olga intends to challenge any deportation attempt on the basis that she has lived with her long term partner Aleks Charcenko (“Sasha”), who is an EU citizen, in Liverpool for the past two years. Thus deportation could potentially breach Olga’s right to family life under the Human Rights Act 1998 Sch. 1, Art. 8 and Sasha’s right to move and reside freely within the European Union, as guaranteed by Council Directive 2004/38/EC.

Olga has been a very active member of the community in Merseyside and the North West region, even recently giving a public lecture in Liverpool about her home town, the Russian city of Irkutsk. Olga is able to receive mail, email and telephone calls and would welcome any messages of support in either Russian or English:

Olga Novoselova, Room D210, Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, Twinwoods Road, Clapham, Bedfordshire, MK41 6HL
