Frontline Update: ‘Lawmakers need to put themselves in my shoes’

by

In this latest Frontline Update, Jalloh of the Freed Voices group speaks out about his THREE YEARS in immigration detention in the UK.

In four different extracts, Jalloh describes his life in the UK after arriving as a teenager seeking asylum and how he first entered detention; how he became trapped in a cycle of punishment with seemingly no escape; how detention destroyed his relationship with his young family, how he repeatedly attempted suicide whilst in detention, and how his incarceration continues to impact his mental health today; and why he’s speaking out and demanding an end to indefinite detention.
