Last week Evening Times, a Glasgow local paper, reported that a two year old child was locked up in a prison with his mum, who is an asylum seeker. Civil society, Churches and other organisations in Scotland have campaigned against this practice and the new Border and Immigration rep in Glasgow assured us that locking up children in Dungavel will be stopped. Not much seems to have changed though. A year ago I commented on another case.
I am not sure if this arrest was staged to confirm the the findings of the Independent Asylum Commission final report which was published a few weeks before that!
