Still a Travesty? Justice in Immigration Bail Hearings: Launch of the Second report of the Bail Observation Project

9 April 2013
Seminar Room 1, Queen Elizabeth House, 3 Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TB

Date: 19:30, Tuesday 9th April 2013

For over 25,000 people detained each year in the UK under immigration law powers, the right to apply for bail is a fundamental right that they need to be able to exercise. This report, based on the observation of 220 bail hearings, shows how that right is curtailed and the how the fairness of procedure in the bail court is gravely compromised.

The event is chaired by Bridget Anderson, and will include a discussion about the report, the project’s continuation, personal experiences of the pail process, the legal background and recommendations for the way forward.

Speakers include practitioners, volunteers, researchers, and a former detainee. These include, Gill Baden, Bridget Walker, Caroline White, Bill MacKeith, and Melanie Griffiths.
