That this House shares the growing concern for the plight of Congolese nationals who have sought asylum in the UK, whose appeals have been refused and who have been forcibly removed to the Democratic Republic of Congo between 2006 and 2011, detailed in the Justice First report entitled Unsafe Return by Catherine Ramos; notes that the Justice First charity was set up in 2006 to work with people in Tees Valley whose asylum appeals had been refused; and urges the Government to respond in detail to this harrowing report which documents many serious violations of the human rights of those forcibly returned.
