Home Office refuses to let great-grandparents remain in UK

Home Office refuses to let great-grandparents remain in UK

Please take a couple of minutes to read about this tragic situation. By signing this letter and showing our support we may be able to have the decision overturned.

Why is this important?

Dear Sajid Javid

Please could you explain the rational in forcing elderly great-grandparents, Mozaffar Saberi (83)and Rezvan Habibimarand (73) to return to Iran? They live in their Edinburgh flat, bought in 1978, have raised 4 children in the UK, have 11 grandchildren and a great grandchild all living close by. Not only do they rely on daily support from their tight-knit family, but they also enable their daughter to work as an NHS nurse by caring for her severely autistic son.

This decision lacks basic humanity; it erodes the values of a tolerant and civilised country making a mockery of the “British Values” teachers must talk about as part of Prevent training. How do their British grandchildren feel about British values when their grand-parents, in their final years, are torn from their family in this in-humane and futile manner?

It is heart breaking and it is not in our name, we urge you to reconsider and allow Mozaffar and Rezvan to live out their lives with their family in the UK.

Here’s a link to the full article in The Guardian 18 January 2019.
