Napier military barracks in Kent are being used to house asylum seekers – but poor living conditions inside mean that revolts and suicide attempts are now commonplace.
The former army base is housing over 400 asylum seekers in cramped accommodation – with no social distancing and limited sanitary facilities.
But pleas from those inside are being silenced by a confidentiality waiver for visitors introduced by the Home Office, gagging them from speaking out.
Security proved to RT UK they are more than capable of keeping those on the inside, quiet. Outside the barracks, asylum speakers are free to talk, but did so cautiously.
Many complain that the prison-like conditions have made what was supposed to be a safe haven in Britain feel more like a new hell.
Many claimed that their experience in the UK resembles the fear and prosecution they fled from – citing prison-like conditions.
