Human rights outcry over airport detainees


Suspected illegal immigrants are being held in rooms at UK airports and ports without independent scrutiny of their welfare and in breach of their human rights, 3 years after the prisons watchdog recommended in a report to the home secretary that detainees should be monitored, the Sunday Herald reports.

The situation is affecting thousands of people detained each year over visa and other document irregularities by the UK Border Agency at 3 non-residential facilities run by Group 4 Securicor at Edinburgh and Glasgow Airport, and Scotland's immigration reporting centre at Festival Court in Glasgow, the newspaper reports.

Heathrow, which has holding facilities at each of its 5 terminals, is the only UK airport which has set up Independent Monitoring Board (IMD) committees - members of the public who visit the facilities every week.
