Tortured Iranian refugee speaks out after risking life in refrigerated lorry

Iranian refugee 'Saman' is rebuilding his life in the UK after he fled torture and risked his life in a refrigerated lorry to reach safety. The 35-year-old has spoken publicly about his ordeal for the first time as he thanked charity workers for helping him on the road to recovery. Freedom From Torture chief executive Sonya Sceats has called on the Government to “right the wrongs” blighting the lives of refugees by overhauling the way decisions are made on asylum claims.
