End Indefinite Detention
Every year, the Government locks up nearly 30,000 people – including children, elderly people and survivors of rape, trafficking and torture. They have not been sentenced for any crime. No judge authorises their incarceration. And worst of all – there’s no limit on how long they can be held.
Without a time limit, the UK’s detention regime is the most brutal in Europe. People enter prison-like detention centres with no idea when, or if, they will be freed. Some are held for years.
