Albanian immigrant Lorenc Hoxha, 27, with a suspected brain tumour has been discharged from hospital for a second time.

He was readmitted to hospital on Wednesday, June 10, after being removed from Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary and arrested on suspicion of immigration offences a week earlier.

He was taken to a detention centre in London and was released after a further medical assessment.

He then travelled back to Newcastle where was admitted to hospital after collapsing.

Mr Hoxha had originally sought help at the RVI on June 1, suffering from a suspected brain tumour. He was discharged the following day, medics having decided he did not need an emergency operation.

North East TV presenter Si King, who has Albanian friends, has offered to pay for the treatment.

“My fear for Lorenc is that he dies,” he said.

“Whether he’s an illegal immigrant or not. That’s not a civilized society that will let another human being die because of systems that administrators adhere to.”

Mr Hoxha has undergone further medical examinations and doctors say he is not in need of emergency medical attention. A hospital in Albania has said they will provide Mr Hoxha with medical care.
