(Jamaica Observer) A woman who has lived in the United Kingdom for more than 25 years and whose son suffers from a serious blood disorder, is reported to be among the Jamaican deportees scheduled to arrive in the island today – International Women’s Day.

A report in yesterday’s online edition of The Independent newspaper said that the mother of three, who asked to be identified only by her first name – Sophia – “is being held at the notorious Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre ahead of a secretive charter flight, which is expected to take around 100 people to the Caribbean country”.

“The 47-year-old’s youngest son, who is 13, has sickle cell disease,” The Independent reported, adding that the boy’s sister, Ruth, told the newspaper that he had been taken to hospital with severe pain three times, after he witnessed his mother taken away by police in October.

“Sophia, whose indefinite leave to remain in the UK was revoked after she committed a non-violent crime, has been told by the Home Office that she can either take her children to live with her in Jamaica, or communicate with them via Skype,” The Independent report states.
