Government says latest Yarl’s Wood allegations ‘unfounded’

February 26, 2010

According to the UK Borders Agency (see this link):

 “The Government has responded to recent media reports regarding Yarl’s Wood immigration removal centre…Home Office Minister, Meg Hillier has written a letter to members of Parliament about the unfounded allegations made by the media, and in particular the recent article in the Guardian about hunger strikes at Yarl’s Wood immigration removal centre”.

You can download the letter at this link:

(As you can imagine, readers – I have my thoughts about this statement. For now, though I look forward to hearing reader responses as well as what the editor of the Guardian has to say F.L)
