End Indefinite Detention
Baobab support a Refugee Rights Europe led partnership calling upon the Home Office to end indefinite detention and consider the use of alternatives to the detention in the first place.
In light of the Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC) report released on 21 March 20191, we join together to encourage the Home Office to seize this opportunity to align its practices with international standards and to demonstrate commitment to a fair and humane system which upholds the human rights and dignity of those seeking sanctuary here. In particular, the HASC reports unequivocally calls on the Government to bring an end to indefinite immigration detention and to implement a maximum 28-day time limit with immediate effect.
