British treatment of asylum seekers never been worse
Diane Abbott has recently become more known for her safe sofa media pundit role of late than for her championing of the underdog that she was once famous for so good to see her pushing on this abuse of rights.
Britain's treatment of asylum seekers has never been worse, the Labour MP Diane Abbott said today.
Abott's comments came after the publication of a report detailing nearly 300 claims of assault on asylum seekers by security staff hired by the Home Office to forcibly deport them.
The Outsourcing Abuse report by Medical Justice, which provides medical and legal advice to deportees, found evidence of long-term injuries to asylum seekers.
The incidents include accusations of excessive force, beatings and racial abuse, resulting in injuries ranging from handcuff-bruised wrists to swollen faces, and fractured ribs, wrists and ankles.
