Detained Pakistani Students at Manchester

I was asked by PHC to act on behalf of 4 out of 10 Pakistani detained students at Manchester prison who are threatened of deportation on national security grounds.

If they choose to appeal their deportation orders, they will have a free standing right of appeal before ‘Special Immigration Appeals Commission’ which was set up under SIAC Act 1997.

I can safely confirm that legal team along with Pakistani Consul General Mr. Masroor Junejo and Welfare Attache Mr. Amir Nisar Ch met all detained students at Manchester namely; Mr. Shoiab Khan, Abdul Wahab Khan, Tariq Ur Rehman and Abid Naseer who are fit and well and instructed Amjad Malik, a Supreme Court Solicitor-Advocate and life member of SCBA (Pakistan) and their appeals have been lodged with effect from 28 April 2009.

Our first priority was to ensure that their appeals are lodged in time. Further matters of their case progress & strategy will be decided in next week including their bail application(s) by a panel of eminent lawyers at the chamber in consultation with all stake holders.
