STOP THE DEPORTATION OF GUY NJIKE

To: the Right. Hon. Jacqui Smith MP, Home Secretary We, the undersigned, urge you to allow Guy Njike (Home Office Number: N1007848) leave to remain in the UK on compassionate grounds. Guy Njike is seeking political asylum in the UK after suffering numerous imprisonments and acts of torture in Cameroon due to his political activities with the opposition party, the Social Democratic Front. During the last occasion that Guy was detained he sustained a serious head injury which resulted in him being transferred to hospital, from where he subsequently escaped and eventually left the country on false documentation. Guy claimed asylum on the day he arrived in the UK, 26th August 1999. Since being in the UK, Guy has tried to re-build his life and completed a Masters degree in human rights at the University of London. He has also given much time and energy to the community through volunteering for a number of organizations, including the Refugee Council. Currently Guy is working fulltime in the Food Hall in Selfridges and volunteering three days a week at Medecins du Mondes. The political situation in Cameroon has not changed significantly. We fear that Guy would be in danger of imprisonment and torture if he is deported to Cameroon. Guy has settled in the UK, where he has lived since 1999 and is part of the community here. We ask you to allow him to stay.

Guy Njike was detained on Monday, 11 February 2008 and is facing deportation to Cameroon, where we fear he will be imprisoned and tortured. Guy Njike is seeking political asylum in the UK after suffering numerous imprisonments and acts of torture in Cameroon due to his political activities with an opposition party. Guy is a great friend and an integral member of the community. It is outrageous that this country is deporting the type of people we need.
