article imageThree Plunge to Death from Glasgow Flat

By Sam Duck     Mar 7, 2010 in World
Glasgow - Two men and a woman have fallen to their deaths from the 15th floor of a high rise flat in Glasgow, Scotland. It appears that the three committed suicide to avoid deportation.
The bodies were found at 8:30 GMT on Sunday morning and are to undergo tests to confirm their identities. A neighbor, 51, has told that the threesome, who are believed to be from Kosovo, had in the apartment for two months.
The flats, set to be demolished, have housed many asylum seekers from the Middle East, Soviet Union, Asia and Africa.
Witness Elizabeth Neilson, 42, expressed horror to Sky News at seeing the bodies on the ground, "It [was] horrible. I was traumatised.”
Director of Positive Action in Housing, Robina Qureshi, has expressed to The Herald sadness at the deaths, speaking of the plight of refugees in the country, “Many live their daily lives under extreme pressure for years because their lives are on hold while they wait to hear if they will be granted leave to remain.”
