G4S BOURNEMOUTH + “Undercover footage allegedly shows staff “mocking, abusing and even assaulting detainees” at a facility in Gatwick”

1] THIS IS THE VERY SAME IMMIGRATION HOLDING FACILITY WHERE G4S EMPLOYEES LIED TO ME IN 2014 TELLING ME CHIWAR MUSA WAS BEING HELD THERE AWAITING HIS DEPORTATION FLIGHT BACK TO NIGERIA AFTER BEING RELEASED FROM HMP AFTER THE TOTALLY QUESTIONABLE 7 YEAR SENTENCE INFLICTED UPON HIM WAS SERVED. AFTER A HUNDRED MILE JOURNEY TO THIS CENTRE TO VISIT CHIWAR I EVENTUALLY FOUND OUT HE WASN’T THERE, AND MY OFFICIAL RECORDED DELIVERY LETTER CONTAINING THE COMPLAINT ABOUT WASTING £80+ IN TRAIN + CAB FARES TO + FROM THE CENTRE WERE LOST “IN THE POST” – MY COMPLAINT HAD THE AUDIO OF THE PHONE CALLS WITH THE CENTRE STAFF CONFIRMING CHIWAR MUSA WAS THERE, WHEN HE WASN’T. AFTER MORE COMPLAINTS TO ROYAL MAIL REGARDING THE MISSING RECORDED DELIVERY LETTERS THEY EVENTUALLY SENT A BOOK OF 1ST CLASS STAMPS AS COMPENSATION. OF COURSE, WE KNOW WHO WAS BEHIND THIS NONSENSE THROUGHOUT.

2]  I REPORTED AN OBESE G4S BOUNCER – WHO WAS EMPLOYED AT THE BOURNEMOUTH COTLANDS RD. DWP JOBCENTRE LOCATION – FOR IMPERSONATING DWP STAFF AT THIS BOURNEMOUTH JOBCENTRE A FEW WEEKS BACK – TOTALLY OUT OF ORDER. MY COMPLAINTS WERE TOTALLY IGNORED BY THE DWP, DWP MINISTERS AND ALL OTHERS WRITTEN TO, INCLUDING, OF COURSE, THE COWBOY FIRM “G4S” THEMSELVES. WHAT A WASTE OF TAX MONEY THIS FIRM ARE – EPECIALLY WITH THESE NEW REVELATIONS!

G4S, which manages Brook House Immigration Removal Centre in Gatwick, said an investigation was launched as soon as the allegations were made by BBC Panorama.

The programme claims to have undercover footage showing officers “mocking, abusing and even assaulting detainees” at the facility where drugs are allegedly “rife”.

The 448-capacity centre for adult men detained under immigration laws opened in March 2009.
There is no place for the type of conduct described in the allegations anywhere in G4S, ” said Jerry Petherick, managing director for custodial and detention services.

“Such behaviour is not representative of the many G4S colleagues who do a great job, often in difficult and challenging circumstances, across the country.

Once we have seen the evidence and concluded the investigation, I will ensure that we take the appropriate action.” [yes, of course you will…NOT!…ed.].

Concerns were raised in a recent inspection which revealed that the average length of detention had increased from 28 to 48 days, with four men held there for more than two years.

The inspection also highlighted issues with the “stark and impersonal” residential units and unsatisfactory sanitary facilities, leading detainees to feel they were being held in prison.

The director of the immigration removal centre, Ben Saunders, said: “Inspectors rightly identify that the purpose-built design is stark in some places and work is already under way to address that, including improving the screening in bathroom areas.

“We will work closely with the Home Office, who own the buildings, to look at how we can further soften the environment, for example by making greater use of the art created by detainees, especially where it has achieved recognition from arts charities.”

Overall the report by HM Chief Inspector of Prisons Peter Clarke in March said it was an “encouraging” inspection.

Brook House was deemed “reasonably good” in all four healthy establishment tests – safety, respect, activities and preparation for removal or release.
“We continue to focus on the care and wellbeing of detainees at Brook House,” said Mr Petherick.

Putting on hidden cameras for a BBC Panorama investigation, the 21-year-old exposes a toxic, brutal and failing environment, where self-harm and drug abuse are commonplace.

Ten staff and former staff have been suspended as a result of his allegations”.
