Duncan Lewis, InThePress Solicitors, Iraqi who brought baby to UK has deportation halted minutes before flight (Multiple sources)

Public Law solicitor Hannah Baynes has been featured in multiple media outlets regarding her client’s deportation to Iraq being halted at the last minute. A man who brought his baby niece to Britain in the back of his car from a French refugee camp after she sustained serious burns has had his deportation halted at the last minute by the Home Office. Najat Ibrahim Ismail, an Iraqi-Kurd, was prosecuted for fraud and assisting unlawful entry after he brought his then seven month old niece and other family members to the UK in January 2016 in what he says was an attempt to save the child’s life. Najat has been in the UK since 2004 and has a British wife and three British children here. An emergency court application was rejected by the Upper Tribunal yet his deportation was unexpectedly deferred by the Home Office. Although the deportation was halted, his legal battle is continues and the client has now received new removal directions for Friday 10 May, which his lawyers intend to challenge. Hannah – who along with Helen Baron is handling the case - is quoted as saying; “This is certainly by no means over but we are very happy to have this reprieve. It was very last minute and we have not been given a clear indication why the deportation was halted. We know we still have a long road ahead and we are still going on with the legal case.” Read more…
