Home Affairs Select Committee critical of UK Border Agency over immigration detention

The Home Affairs Select Committee has issued a highly critical report of the UK Border Agency’s handling of immigration detainees suffering from mental illness. The report refers to the four judgments handed down since 2011 in which the High Court has found immigration detention of men suffering from mental illness to constitute inhuman and degrading treatment contrary to article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Bhatt Murphy acted for the claimants in three of the cases.
