Refusal Of UK Visa For Helen Berhane

EDM number 1531 in 2010-12, proposed by Jeffrey Donaldson on 03/03/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Nationality.

That this House regrets the decision by the UK Border Agency to refuse a visa for Helen Berhane to enter the UK; recalls the enormous suffering and persecution endured by Helen whilst held prisoner in Eritrea in appalling conditions in a shipping container where she was tortured, abused and beaten because of her strong Christian faith; notes that Helen desires to share with people in the UK a message of hope, peace and reconciliation; and calls on the Home Office to intervene urgently to ensure that this decision is reviewed and a visa issued to Helen Berhane.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
