The Farooqi family had a public meeting earlier this week and in this meeting they gave us an interview telling us why they need your support.
The Farooqi family is an innocent Muslim family in Manchester who are currently facing the threat of their home being seized by the CPS under anti-terrorism laws. This means 5 adults will be made homeless including a seven month old baby and an eight year old child.
“Save the Family Home” Campaign was set up after the Farooqi family were told they may be made homeless as a result of Munir Farooqi’s recent conviction on terrorism charges where he was encouraged by undercover police over a number of months into incriminating himself by the illegal practice of entrapment.
Mr Farooqi, the father of the family, is now serving a prison sentence but he is appealing against his conviction. However, the CPS is threatening to collectively punish the entire family by seizing their family home. The family are completely innocent and should not be made homeless.
This is not only against the human rights of the family members, who have been proven innocent, but if allowed to go ahead will set a precedent for the law as well as opening up the way to legitimising collective punishment. We cannot allow this to happen. Help us help the family.
Help us help the family.
