Windrush generation: Formal apology for 18 people
(BBC) 21 August, 2018 – Eighteen members of the UK’s Windrush generation who could have been wrongfully removed or detained are to get a formal apology.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid said a review of 11,800 cases had identified the 18 as those “most likely to have suffered detriment because their right to be in the UK was not recognised”.
Any who have left the UK will be helped to return, Mr Javid said.
Amnesty International said apologising to “just 18” people was “worrying”.
Steve Valdez-Symonds, from the human rights group, said it “brings into question whether the Home Office has a realistic grasp on all the people it has wrongly detained and removed following the exposure of its appalling treatment of the Windrush generation”.
