RAYMOND BAI-KAMARA July 19, 2018

The chairman of ex-Asylum seekers Mr. AbdulaiDaramy , has on behalf of the general membership of the organization intervened in the recent deportation of Sierra Leoneans from the united kingdom.

Addressing journalists in a news conference organized at the special court for Sierra Leone on jomokenyatta road in Freetown, Mr. AbdulaiDaramy recalled that they also had been victims of deportation from Germany. He entreated the recent sierra Leonean deportees from the UK to take heart.

Mr. Abdulai Daramy admonished family members to stop the habit of refusing or rejecting their siblings who face deportation abroad. It would be recalled that since 2009, a research had been done on deportation with the establishment of an office on No 26 regent road, Freetown, to seek the interest of deportation victims nationwide. The chairman commended MEDICO international in Germany for its continued support to the organization since 2011.

He called on the Government, Non-Governmental Organization NGOs and human rights organizations the world over to come to the aid of deportees as they have several concerns that should be addressed.

Mr. Daramy said the Government of President Dr. Enest Bai Koroma should ensure that the home office abroad is up to the task, adding that the Government should also create a legal framework that seek the interest of human rights issues in the country.

He lamented that approximately 90% of Sierra Leoneans walking the street of Freetown and other parts of the country with psychiatric problems are victims of deportation.
He stressed that they were looking forward to seeing Government creating a legal framework that would protect the rights of deportees, provide economic integration and facilitate social support and skills development in Sierra Leone.
