Cemil Must Stay sign now

My name is Cemil Dogan, I am 28 years old and I came to Britain 3 years ago from Turkey to seek political asylum. I was arrested 9 times between 1996 and 2000 for politically opposing the Turkish regime. I suffered torture which included electric shocks, suspension from the ground by my hands and torture by high pressure water hose.

Since arriving in Britain I have gained a number of qualifications and am now working as an interpreter in five languages as well as continuing my studies and working at Sheffield University.

I have been refused refugee status three times now. In August 2005 a tribunal appeal agreed that my case required a review. Following a second home office interview I was once again refused on the grounds that Turkey is considered to be safe. However, I still fear that I would not be safe if I were returned home. In June 2005, 17 leaders of the political organisation which I support were assassinated at their 2nd congress. They were killed by a wing of the Turkish army.

I fear that if I were to return to Turkey I would face torture and solitary confinement. Please support my right to refugee status
