Title G4S accused of 'culture of intimidation' against asylum seekers who complain about poor housing Media name/outlet The Independent Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 2/02/17 Description Dr Jonathan Darling, a geographer at the University of Manchester focused on forced migration, told the filmmakers: “G4S and Serco had no real experience of providing this form of housing before the onset of COMPASS.
“They have historically run things like detention centres and deportation contracts, so what we’re saying is that the forms of social care and support that we’re providing to people within the asylum system are being provided by the same people who might also be deporting people from the country. That is a significant political and symbolic message.”
