Immigration Detention Centres

Inquests into Deaths at Immigration Detention Centres

 

The Prison and Probation Ombudsman conducts investigations into the deaths of immigration detention centre detainees. They will form a report which, when sent to the coroner, will aid the inquest.

 

If you are bereaved by the death of someone detained in an immigration detention centre, you can seek legal advice pertaining to the inquest and the surrounding processes. Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors have extensive knowledge of the way inquests are conducted and your rights as an ‘interested person.’

 

In these types of inquests, an advanced inquest may be necessary. In these circumstances, the inquest raises questions of human rights and may reveal potential negligence apparent in the immigration detention centre. In such a case, the inquest will lead to a criminal enquiry.

 

In this circumstance, the inquest raises questions of human rights and may reveal potential negligence apparent in the immigration detention centre. In this case, the inquest will lead to a criminal enquiry which stretches beyond the powers of the Coroner.

 

It is important to understand your position within the inquest proceedings. In Duncan Lewis’ Action Against Public Authorities department, our solicitors have extensive experience within this area of law and can assist you through every stage of the inquest.

 

Once an inquest has been concluded, should you wish to appeal the decision, we can prepare your appeal on your behalf. When an appeal cannot be met, we can apply for judicial review, where the case permits.
