From: Michael Hampton <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I’m Michael James Hampton, a South African citizen being oppressed for exposing political corruption in South Africa. My passport is A06659457.
Whilst I was here, completing ‘Same Poo, Different Government’, my book about part of that corruption, the Cape Town High Court ordered that my book couldn’t be published, and that I must be arrested and my website closed down. It was a draconian measure protecting the Democratic Alliance, far surpassing the gag order an ex-politician, involved in the corruption, had gained against me.
I have several unfinished processes in South Africa which includes 3 hearings in Parliament so far.
Please view the attached asylum request.
I’m currently at Hosea Kutako airport in Windhoek and will hand myself into customs. It is my hope that the Nambian government responds with kindness and opens up a communication channel with the Presidency of South Africa. My goal is to return home and bring criminals to justice, that includes corrupt policemen and government officials. I fear that I will vanish if put in jail.
