According to a series of tweets from the Twitter handle of the Greater Manchester Police (GMP), an Iranian man, Arash Aria, 25, who has stayed in the city illegally for 10 years, walked into the police station and demanded for deportation.
Unemployed Arash, who was formerly a waiter and barman, complained bitterly about the attitude of the people of Manchester in his last ten years.
He said, “The people of Manchester have not been welcoming. It’s words, violence, many things.
“I try to ignore people but I’m fed up now. I don’t get the respect I should here. People are not friendly here in Manchester. When they are rude to me, I don’t like it.
“Particularly in the last year, it’s got really bad. I try to be friendly and polite. But they just laugh at me because I am foreign and look at me strangely.”
The GMP described his action as strange but admitted that his wish would be granted after verifying that Arash can leave the country from immigration liaison which says he had indefinite leave to stay in the country.
Hopefully, he would return to Shiraz, South West Iran when his expired Iranian passport is renewed.
