Government impedes police inquiry into sexual assault at UK detention centre.


'The UK government is about to deport five women who have experienced or witnessed sexual abuse at Yarl's Wood detention centre, according to the campaign group Movement for Justice.

'A spokesman for the group, protesting outside the Home Office this afternoon, said:

    “Five of the eight women facing deportation to Pakistan tonight have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment from male officers in Yarl's Wood. The attempt to deport the witnesses is part of the Home Office's desperate attempts to cover up the scandal."
