HUM feels immense pleasure to formally announce that Liaquat Ali Hazara, the Founder and the incumbent Chairman of this Organisation; was bailed yesterday who has confirmed to arrive home safely late last night.

For LAH, these six months have been extremely demanding, testing and challenging which testified the predicaments of the detainees inside various Immigration Removals Centres across the UK. While lauding the efforts and endeavour of various British and international communities, UN agencies, human rights organisations of international-repute, Members of British Parliament, media outlets, community leaders, mayor(s) and councillors, academicians, political, welfare and academic organisations, and campaigners and supporters are, particularly, mentioned in the following lines to acknowledge the magnitude of their contribution and pay unreserved gratitude through this communique.
