Nine G4S staff at immigration removal suspended

G4S has suspended nine members of staff from an immigration removal centre near Gatwick Airport, following a BBC Panorama undercover investigation. G4S said the staff suspensions were a "Precaution" but it has reported the allegations to "The relevant authorities". "Such behaviour is not representative of the many G4S colleagues who do a great job, often in difficult and challenging circumstances," Jerry Petherick, managing director for G4S' custodial and detention services in the UK, said,. "In response to the Panorama investigation, a Home Office spokesman said:"We condemn any actions that put the safety or dignity of immigration removal centre detainees at risk. "We are clear that all detainees should be treated with dignity and respect and we expect G4S to carry out a thorough investigation into these allegations and that all appropriate action be taken."
