On thursday, March 15th, it was revealed that an Iranian Kurd who's an asylum seeker in this country for over a year now by the name of Adnan Hassan Mohammadi, decided to re-enact the draconian blackmail as seen by the afghans during their occupation of St Pats Cathedral last year.
I have to say, the hunger strike thing is really becoming a tactic to use in order to screw the asylum system nowadays. Do you agree? I applaud our asylum process for being firm against those who wish to come and abuse it. Minister for Justice, Michael McDowell is probably the best Minister who sorted out the mess that the Irish asylum system had moulded itself into.
Our asylum system is one of the fairest in Europe, as verified by the UNHCR who confirmed this when he visited Ireland last year. Is it really this bad, the way people like Rosanna Flynn try to make it out to be?
