Kamila and Karina Kaya

DEPORTATION row twins Kamila and Karina Kaya are still in Birmingham anxiously awaiting their fate.

The 18-year-old sisters are currently continuing their studies at Bournville College of Further Education.

But the threat they could be booted out of the country and sent back to Kyrgystan is still hanging over their heads.

They have now been given two court dates in the near future when a judge will start deciding their fate.

Kamila and Karina, who now live in Stirchley, fled to the UK three years ago from Kyrgystan after the brutal murder of their parents.

They are completing the first part of their science diploma and in September hope to do a two-year course and apply to medical school.

The girls are being supported entirely by the Jewish community and have not claimed a penny from the state since their arrival.

But they have been taken to Yarl's Wood detention centre in Bedford twice in the last six months by the Home Office which argues they are here illegally.

Each time they have been granted bail and released following an outcry from their supporters.

What was the outcome of the High Court challenge against the twin's deportation? I can find no current news on their fate.

I protested to my MP about their shameful treatment in Jan 07. The Home Office minister wouldn't comment on an individual case.

Dear bilshk:

I've been unable to find any information about the outcome of their case on the internet. I've been meaning to follow up on this and post an update. Thanks for reminding me!
