Safeguards for People Detained in Prison

Safeguards, however flawed, are in place for those held in detention centres, in order that the Home Office is informed of the most vulnerable women and men. Nothing comparable exists for those immigration detainees held in prisons. This is unfair and unreasonable, and our clients are challenging this.
