The case of Ama Sumani, the dying Ghanaian woman deported (strictly: “removed”) from Britain today is as tragic as anything I’ve seen in the news recently.
Of course, the immigration officials are “right”. She had overstayed her visa and had in any case broken its terms. There is no question about the legalities if the BBC report is accurate.
But where is the compassion? To take a dying woman from a hospital and put her on an aircraft is beyond belief.
