Sexual abuse claimed at British immigration center

THE Observer, London

A letter to Tanja from UKBA said it had found “sufficient evidence” to indicate that Serco guards “did behave in an unprofessional way.”

“When an allegation of sexually inappropriate behavior between staff and a resident was brought to our attention in 2012, the matter was fully investigated and as a result three members of staff were dismissed,” said John Tolland, Serco’s director at Yarl’s Wood.

The UKBA’s professional standards unit, which has responsibility for investigating allegations of misconduct by agency officials or private contractors, has said the alleged victim did not indicate to its investigator that her sexual contact with guards was “anything other than consensual.”
