Sometimes the representatives of organisations display such a callous disregard for human life.  I have come across so many examples of the complete disregard for the welfare of fellow human beings that I thought nothing would surprise me, but I was wrong.  The treatment of Ama Sumani, who is dying of cancer, is a complete disgrace.  The officials who removed her from hospital in a wheelchair, and sent her back to Ghana to die should be ashamed of themselves.

Ama Sumani was removed from this country (not deported) because her visa had expired.  But as she only has weeks to live, was it really necessary to take her from the Cardiff hospital, and put her on a plane to Ghana?  Of course not.  Maybe if the jobsworth who made the decision had exercised a little brain power, and made a decision based on humanitarian grounds then things would have been different.  Whoever was responsible for this should have been sacked.
