Stop the deportation of Anselme Noumbiwa

To: the Home Secretary We, the undersigned want to draw your attention to the injustice and dangers of returning Anselme Noumbiwa (Home Office Ref. N1126839) to Cameroon. Anselme fled Cameroon in 2006 because on the death of his father, the village Chief, he was expected to 'marry' his father's wives. He suffered brutal treatment at the hands of the village notables when he would not adhere to tribal traditions, preferring instead to identify himself with Christian ethics. His story was believed by the Home Office, but he was told that he could relocate within Cameroon and would be safe. This is not the case, as the influence of powerful members of his tribe reaches beyond the area where he lived. If he is sent back to Cameroon, he will be in mortal danger. We ask you to allow him to stay in the UK.


We are friends and neighbours of Anselme Noumbiwa. Please help us to keep him safe here in the UK with us.
