Help local family save Javad from deportation

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about a young man called Javad and the any-day-now threat of his deportation back to Iran. To try and prevent this, a petition for the Home Office had been created by the family offering him a home and local people who know him. Signatures have been added to the petition, but more are needed – and I am writing again, to ask you to consider signing, if you haven’t as yet. With gratitude on behalf of all those connected to Javad, writes Zelly Restorick. I assure you 100% that this is a genuine situation about local people and their deep love for a young man they wish to protect and offer a safe haven.

Save Javad from deportation

The local people who have created this petition for the Home Office are totally genuine and trustworthy. Sonia Plato, a recently retired CEO, Sousan Lari, a tutor, and Terry Alexander, also a tutor and one half of the couple who have offered Javad a safe space to be, have sent out the petition in the hope of preventing this young man from being deported to Iran. They are honest and caring people – and I know 100% that this petition can be trusted as real and sincere, writes Zelly Restorick. Their concern for Javad’s safety is genuine. Please read on and sign the petition – and make a difference to the life of this young man and those who care for him and wish for him to stay within the safety of his new family.
