No Deportations

There was at least one good thing about the Icelandic volcano eruption that closed Eurpean airspace and that was, it temporarily, stopped deportations from the UK.

Now an Iranian woman gets a welcome reprieve from deportation to Iran.
[Bita] Ghaedi has spoken out against sharia law, forced marriage and human rights abuses in Iran. She has also criticised the regime on TV channels widely available across the Middle East. These actions, along with her public support of the PMOI (People's Mujahedin of Iran), which is opposed to the Iranian regime, are enough to put her life in danger if she is deported, according to Zadshir and her lawyer.

In his ruling, Mr Justice Nicol said that given the "very considerable amount of further information which has been supplied, concerning (in particular) the claimant's association with Iranian opposition groups and the subsequent publicity given thereto", the court should hear her renewed application for judicial review.
Now to get the deportation permanently stopped.
