Dear (name of MP )
I am writing to ask that you look into the case of Joan Shurland, a 45-year old partially-disabled mother whose life will be under serious threat if the decision to deport her to Jamaica goes through.
When she lived in Jamaica, Joan's family was targeted by gangsters. They threatened to rape her daughter. She witnessed them murder her son. They then attempted to execute her, shooting her in the head. She was in a coma for three months. The attack left her blind in one eye, traumatised and still vulnerable to attack. She fled to the UK in 2002. Her house in Jamaica has been burnt down.
Joan's application for asylum seems to have been processed without considering the details of her individual case. A narrow and technical interpretation of persecution has been applied without regard for how this would affect her chances of survival.
Given Joan's vulnerability and the danger she would face were she to return, I believe the decision to deport her constitutes a threat to her life.
I urge you to investigate this matter and regard it in seriousness. I hope you decide to do whatever you can to enable Joan to continue to stay in Britain or, alternatively, forward your position to those with the power to intervene.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Signed… (your name and details)
