‘SHOCKING ABUSE!’ – at the hands of the state
PEOPLE who have fled to Britain, seeking help and refuge, are suffering horrifying violence at the hands of the British state, it was alleged yesterday.
‘Outsourcing Abuse’, a report detailing allegations of hundreds of assaults, was launched yesterday at a London press conference where independent doctors, lawyers and former detainees of privately-run immigration detention centres spoke out.
They warned that the allegations detailed in the report were just the tip of an iceberg.
One member of the audience broke down in a flood of tears at the disturbing accounts given to the press conference, and had to leave the room.
Dr Frank Arnold, from Medical Justice, said the second section of the report was a dossier of 47 cases, supported by medical evidence, of people ‘who state they have been assaulted by agents of the British state’.
He said that many had suffered the same kind of injuries and that over three quarters had been seen by one or more of 18 independent doctors.
‘I’ve seen about ten,’ he told reporters.
He added: ‘I have seen many serious injuries with long-lasting effects.’
