Motion text

That this House congratulates Dr Sabir Zazai FRSE, Chief Executive of the Scottish Refugee Council, on his award of the Order of the British Empire; commends his tireless dedication to advocating for refugees, who have often been through very traumatic and difficult experiences; recognises the importance of this work, particularly the leadership he has shown both in the Scottish Refugee Council and the sector more broadly; further recognises the valuable work of his colleagues at the Scottish Refugee Council, particularly over the past year, which has seen the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the outbreak of war in Ukraine, which has hugely increased demand for their services; and wishes Sabir and his colleagues the very best in their future endeavours.
