URGENT! Gay Ugandan asylum seeker faces removal tomorrow please sign a petition

Posted by Margaret on Wednesday, Aug 17, 2011

Gay Ugandan Robert faces being forced to leave the UK tomorrow (Thursday 18 August). Please sign this petition to try to prevent this.

LGBT Asylum News reports:

Robert was imprisoned and tortured for homosexuality. On escaping prison in June 2010 he fled to the UK and applied for asylum a fortnight later. The UK Border Agency (UKBA) does not accept he is gay and a judge rejected his appeal claiming that there is no risk to gay people in Uganda.
