Asylum: Democratic Republic of Congo

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many allegations his Department has received of ill-treatment of asylum seekers returned to the Democratic Republic of Congo in each of the last four years; and how many investigations his Department has carried out into such allegations in each such year. (300414)

[holding answer 23 November 2009]: The UK Border Agency does not record the number of allegations of ill treatment on return to countries of origin. When specific allegations are made that a returnee to the Democratic Republic of Congo, or any other country, has experienced ill-treatment on return from the UK, then these are investigated.
