Urgent support for young man to stay in UK

Javad is a young orphaned autistic man, who came to the UK from Iran. Since learning about Javad’s case, Hastings Online Times has supported his wish to stay in the UK with Terry and Stuart Alexander, who three years ago took him into their home and hearts. Having had the threat of deportation hanging over his head for so long, Javad now wants to make another application to the Home Office to be allowed to stay in this country. With this aim and the help of his supporters, Javad is preparing to travel to Liverpool to do this on 22 May and he urgently needs your active and loud support. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.
