A Light On Asylum

As an indictment of the way the Home Office and UK Borders Agency systematically fail to adequately examine asylum applications, even when patently obvious evidence of torture is present, or provide proper medical care (in this case via the private detention centre management company G4S) for those held in immigration detention, we suggest you take a look at a new Corporate Watch article covering the case of Nigerian asylum claimant Prince Ademola Babatunde Bakare. The article covers the full background of the case covered by the Independent back in February and also highlights the difficulty of getting fair and balanced press coverage, even in liberal newspapers such as the Independent.
