David Rhys Jones on UKBA treatment of torture survivors & victims of trafficking December 13, 2012
David Rhys Jones, policy adviser for the Helen Bamber Foundation, has written for openDemocracy on the detention of torture survivors and victims of trafficking in the UK.
David writes that ‘the UK immigration authorities routinely detain people who should not be detained, and ignore or dismiss medical evidence of torture‘ and discusses a joint report from the Chief Inspector of the UK Border Agency and HM Prisons Inspectorate on the issue.
