M.Y. is originally from Taiwan. She came to the UK seeking sanctuary after refusing to be an intelligence officer for the Taiwanese government as she became morally uncomfortable with the work she was asked to carry out.
She has been detained by the UK Home Office, with the intention of forcibly removing her from the UK.
M.Y. was detained on Tuesday 10th December, “Human Rights Day”, and held at Newport Central Police Station. As 25 people, including many friends, came to show solidarity with her while she was in the Police Station, news came through that M.Y was being transferred to a detention centre. She is now in Yarl’s Wood.
