Focal Point Extra
Thursday 20th April 2017

Studio discussion about Asylum seekers and the issues faced with regard to accommodation with Justin Kouame NISRAS Chairperson, Philani Dube, Housing For All and Les Allamby N.I. Human Rights Commission.

The discussion follows on from the Home Affairs Committee which said the current contract system for asylum accommodation isn’t working and major reforms are needed. The Committee brands the state of some asylum accommodation provided by Government contractors a ‘disgrace’ and says it is ‘shameful’ that very vulnerable people have been placed in these conditions.
