Our team has a reputation for securing successful results in some of the most difficult of cases, where individuals may be seeking any of the following:
Our expertise is underscored through extensive training programmes that we provide on immigration issues more widely and in particular on unlawful detention. Most recently, these include:
Unlawful Detention and Covid-19
The Goldsmith Immigration Team is well-known for our work with those who have been or are detained under immigration powers. We also work very closely with Bail for Immigration Detainees(‘BID’). You will have noted media coverage in relation to detainees, which was highlighted by BID in their letter to the Home Office on 11th March 2020 – a letter that was also co-signed by Medical Justice, Detention Action, Medact, Right to Remain, Women for Refugee Women, JCWI, Migrants Organise, Liberty, and ILPA. We shar their concerns about the very real risk of an uncontrolled outbreak of COVID-19 in immigration detention. The letter called for the release of immigration detainees.
Has the Home Office moved fast enough? Has the Home Office reviewed each person’s detention? Have they released all that could/should have been released?
As the dust settles, it may be that some of your clients will have a valid claim for compensation, if it is found that they were unlawfully detained
