From The Socialist newspaper, 19 October 2017

Hundreds of torture victims wrongly detained

Imprisoning any refugee, tortured or not, is barbaric

Close detention centres now

The High Court has ruled against the Tories' imprisonment of hundreds of refugees fleeing torture.

The Tories' system limits the definition of torture to action by a state. But terrorist groups, people traffickers and other non-state forces also torture people.

Back in January, parliament's Public Accounts Committee warned that Syrian torture survivors were not receiving the necessary treatment.

Also that the 8,250 funding for each refugee - less in each subsequent year - was not enough to fund services.

Incarcerating desperate people escaping war and destitution - torture victims or not - is barbarism. Close the migrant internment camps! Reverse austerity and fund jobs, homes and services for all.
