Helen Bih is an asylum seeker from Cameroon. Detained by UK Home Office in April 2009 even though she has no criminal history, Helen has been given a negative decision for her asylum case so far. Helen is terrified to return to Cameroon because of what she suffered in her country (ie. detention and torture) before October'08 due to her political activities with Social Democratic Front. Biya took over in 1982. Since then, figures from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund reflect the decline of Cameroon's economy from a middle-income to a highly-indebted poor country. For the last two years, Cameroon has ranked as the most corrupt country on earth according to international watchdog Transparency International. Since seeking asylum in UK, Helen lived in Glasgow where she involved herself with church activities and also volunteer projects. Since being detained, Helen's mental health has worsened too. Cameroon has, according to various Human Rights reporters, a very poor human rights record especially on abuse and torture on those who are critical of President Paul Biya's regime. Friends of Helen and the Cameroonian community in UK in particular today urge the Home Office in UK to review her case and evidences compassionately, as well as demand her release from detention pending the outcome of her case review. Helen Bih should be spared from deportation and instead be humanely granted the right to stay in UK without fear or restrictions. Please consider the voices of the all the people who have signed this petition. Grant the people of Glasgow their wish - to have Helen back among us with granted status.
