I have just received a telephone call from Tabi/Hannah to say that the deportation order has been cancelled - ten minutes before she was due to begin the check-in process. Now that we have both stopped crying, I thought I would let everyone know.
This week has truly been a vale of tears for our friend, but I know she has been comforted by the love and support shown by so many people. We can now begin the process of launching an appeal and starting bail proceedings to bring her home. It is by no means certain that she will ultimately win the right to remain in Britain, but she has at least been granted a second chance to argue her case and some time to consider what she will do should she eventually have to leave. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the help and prayers we have received during the past week. Praise be to God, this really is a miracle.
