Trafficked victim is saved from deportation
A VICTIM of human trafficking who has found home in Glasgow has been saved from deportation.
Duc Nguyen was due to be sent back back to Vietnam today but the Home Office cancelled his flight after a campaign to keep him in the UK.
Thousands of locals signed a petition to save Duc, who has become an important figure in the East End community.
After the Home Office refused his appeal for asylum, he was taken to Dungavel House Immigration Removal Centre in Lanarkshire and then moved to Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre, in Middlesex, to await deportation.
During his time in Glasgow, he volunteered at local community projects, including the Lambhill Stables. Duc said: “I am so very happy and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate them for fighting for me.”
