Mohammed Ullah a long term client of MOJO is to be removed from the UK and returned to his country of origin Bangladesh.
Mohammed was convicted of killing his stepson Kyle in 2004. Mohammed has maintained his innocence since he was convicted and was supported by Kyle’s Mother. We have supported his claim of factual innocence and have attempted to have his case brought to the Appeal Court without success.
Once Mohammed had served his sentence the process to have him removed from the UK begun. He was taken to an English detention centre once he had been granted parole. He has been trying to stop the deportation on the grounds that he will not be safe in Bangladesh because he was a member of an opposition party. He says that he will face violence from the Police if he is returned.
Mohammed with the assistance of MOJO and his Solicitors have made representations to the Bangladesh High Commission, and to the UK immigration authorities to allow Mohammed to remain in the UK to continue to fight his legal case to have his conviction overturned but this has fallen on deaf ears.
Mohammed has a judicial review this afternoon at 2:00PM to challenge his removal. If this fails he will be escorted back to Bangladesh by four UK Immigration Officials. We can only hope that he is successful in the judicial review.
In a call today to the office he thanked everyone who has tried through the years to help him raise awareness of his case, and helped him try to find justice.
We hope for the best for him but feel he will struggle to fight his case if returned to Bangladesh.
