Refugees and Asylum Seekers — Robert Spooner 15th July 2013

Along with Rodrigo, a politi­cian refugee from North Uganda,  who now has asylum in the UK, and an ex Buddhist monk called Sraman from  Bangladesh, who is still seek­ing asylum after 8 years, Robert explained the increas­ing dif­fi­culties of many refugees want­ing asylum in the UK. Both of his col­leagues told their story and answered ques­tions which enabled us to have a better idea of their plight.

The present­a­tion put for­ward a view­point on the sub­ject which pos­sibly a lot are not aware of, and it pro­voked many ques­tions from the floor.
