DRC Asylum Seekers Face 'torture With Discretion' if Removal From UK


A top-secret document circulating among senior police and security chiefs in the Democratic Republic of Congo suggests that individuals deported from Britain may face torture on their return to their home country.

Details of the document have emerged as the Home Office begins to detain dozens of Congolese nationals for removal, despite concerns over human rights abuses.
The highly sensitive document is an order from Congo's ministry of the interior, circulated to senior officials in the national intelligence agency, Agence Nationale de Renseignements, the police and the Direction Générale de Migration and leaked to the Observer. It instructs security chiefs to track down and arrest opponents of the government, including members of the main opposition party, the Union for Democracy & Social Progress, and suggests torture could be used with "discretion".

 . . . . A report by Justice First monitored 11 returnees to the DRC from the UK for a period up to September 2013. Nine had been detained, of whom eight were imprisoned and two died, one apparently after receiving severe beatings from Congolese officials.
The document passed to the Observer urges police, immigration and secret service officials to be on the lookout for asylum seekers who have been forcibly returned at the different border posts in Kinshasa, including Ndjili airport, Ngobila Beach on the border between Congo and Congo Brazzaville, and other secret entry points along the river which borders the two countries.
