“Outsourcing Abuse”, an investigative report by Birnberg Peirce & Partners, Medical Justice and the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns found an alarming number of injuries sustained by asylum deportees at the hand of private escorts, including G4S, contracted by the Home Office, over the last 4 years.
No one should be imprisoned for trying to seek a better life for themselves and their families. As if that wasn’t bad enough, it is shocking that the conditions under which people are held are scandalously poor, and that private companies like G4S profit from human suffering and the repressive border regime.
