A Statement from the Diocese of Newcastle (Church of England) regarding Abdul Ezedi

A spokesperson said: “Our churches remain committed to working with the most vulnerable in our society, including those who seek asylum, many of whom have suffered torture or persecution in their home countries. Our clergy will continue to support asylum seekers as they engage with the Home Office application process, and the scrutiny this involves. We have checked records held by parishes close to where Abdul Ezedi lived in Newcastle, and have found no evidence of him attending any of our churches, or being supported by our clergy in any asylum application. We pray for the mother and her two children injured in this shocking and horrific incident and for the police as they continue to hunt for the attacker.”
