The message today from Sheffield (September 11, 2007) :
We have some good news at last!
Pegah was granted bail this morning, is now out of Yarls Wood Detention Centre and back with people who will love and care for her. The Court of Appeal have also agreed to hear her case. It will be listed within the next couple of weeks and will be heard sometime in the next few months, we believe.
There are also other actions that we know are being taken on her behalf, by influential organisations at a high level in the UK.
We really don’t think that we would have got this far without the fantastic work you have put in supporting Pegah. She is truly grateful and gives her heartfelt thanks to you all – as do we. It is impossible to overstate the value of your support.
This does not mean that Pegah is out of the woods but she is now in a much more hopeful position.
As you will understand Pegah needs time to recover from the ordeal of the past few weeks. She also needs to get back in touch with the ordinary business of living her life in some peace and tranquility.
We will keep you updated as events develop.
Love and solidarity to you all
