“After long discussions with the most friendly, charming and welcoming immigration people, the decision was made to detain us for the night and to deport us in the morning, Of course, I was gutted. So close yet so far.”

In a police statement cited by Iran’s state broadcaster; Irib it mentioned that Joss did not possess the required documentation to enter the country, when she arrived on a flight from Oman on 29 June.
