A ZIMBABWEAN woman who fears she will be killed if she is deported has returned to Nottingham.

Patricia Wadi has finally been granted bail after spending weeks in detention.

Ms Wadi was just two hours away from being deported on December 4, when Nottingham South MP Alan Simpson (below)’s

office intervened and made representations to the Minister for Immigration.

But she continued to be held because the authorities did not accept she is from Zimbabwe.

Mr Simpson said it was a good sign she had been granted bail. He added: “It’s brilliant news. It suggests that they know she’s Zimbabwean and not from Malawi. Given that the only language she spoke other than English is Zimbabwean, I would have thought that was fairly obvious from the start.”

Bail was eventually granted yesterday, following two applications by James Ramowski, a lawyer representing Ms Wadi.

But Mr Ramowski has still not been officially notified of Ms Wadi’s bail – or the reasons for it.

He said: “I’ve only found out about it through third parties, through one of the sureties she’s going to be bailed to.”

The Home Office have been to visit the house, which is unusual, to check it’s his house as claimed, and also that there’s a room for her there.”

Ms Wadi, 36, fled Zimbabwean capital Harare after her husband, an activist for the Movement for Democratic Change, was tortured and killed. She has been living in the Radford area for six years.

Further inquiries will now be made over her status.

Iam totally powerless and feeling very dissapointed about the recent events,Patricia Wadi a Zimbabwean who was living in Nottingham is on the brink of being deported she is briefly being held at Yarlswood Detention Centre in Bedford,her crime she travelled to the UK using a Malawian passport,apparently she is not the only Zimbabwean  being detained under similar circumstances we have another Thethelani being detained at Oakington detention Centre in Cambridge.Patricia is a member of the NZCN.We as the NZCN have been invited by the Lord Mayor of Nottingham for a Mayor X-Mass Cheer Fund part of the proceeds being channelled into Zimbabwe,there are now calls to totally boycott this event if she is deported we will make our concerns be known through the media locally and internationally.This event is earmarked for the 10-12-08.My belief is if its to show some kind of solidarity with the suffering people of Zimbabwe then to an extent it has to start from here,we know the people of Nottingham want to help and we thank the Lord Mayor for this kind of gratitude but i think our dignity comes first,they will always be more donations hopefully in a new Zimbabwe.
Patricia Wadi s details Yarlswood prison Bedford,her contact number is 07919843592
Peterbrough detention number was XN4931.
Patricia is earmarked to be deported on the04-12-08
