Law firm Birnberg Peirce, Medical Justice and the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns launch a joint report at their Press Conference at Garden Court on Monday 14 July

The findings are based on nearly 300 cases of alleged physical assault and racial abuse and follow a four-year investigation into concerns about the control and use of private security firms in the deportation process.

Many of the allegations were first published in The Independent in October last year when ministers then dismissed the cases as being unsubstantiated and requested more evidence. Please go to the link below to see today's news report in the Independent.
