DETENTION OF TORTURE SURVIVORS
EDM #95
Tabled 21 May 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House welcomes Medical Justice's new report, The Second Torture: The Immigration Detention of Torture Survivors, which demonstrates how the UK Border Agency is failing to fulfil its statutory duty to safeguard torture survivors, as outlined in Rule 35 (3) of the Detention Centre Rules 2001; notes with concern that the poor implementation of Rule 35 has been raised by HM Inspectorate of Prisons, the Joint Committee on Human Rights and non-governmental organisations for nine years, highlighting the continued failure to identify and release torture victims from immigration detention; urges the Government to take the necessary steps to safeguard this group; calls for an independent audit of the Rule 35 process to assess its effectiveness; and calls on the Government to launch an independent inquiry if the results of such an audit do not adequately demonstrate that Rule 35 is functioning effectively.
