Excellent report by Catrin Nye into unlawful immigration detention and the compensation paid to those wrongfulyl detained. Good to see Conservative MP Tim Loughton speaking out on the wastefulness of the process, the pointlessness of detaining then releasing, as occurs in 60% of cases, and referencing the recent Shaw Review.
The stand out quote is from Jerome Phelps of Detention Action:
In prison, you count the days down. In detention, you count the days up.”
