Two deaths in the UK's immigration prisons

A 25 year old male detainee being held in Colnbrook immigration removal centre near Heathrow died on Sunday morning, 31st July. The name/nationality of the man is unknown. FreeMovement have been in contact with detainees but they have been too distressed to speak coherently.

Meanwhile a 35 year old man was found hanged this morning, 2nd August, at Campfield detention centre near Oxford, reports The Guardian.

The two men are the latest in a long line of fatalities at the hands of the UKBA. Their deaths come less than a month after that of another male detainee at Colnbrook, Muhammed Shuket.
