Kenmure Street protest RECAP: Police release two men detained by immigration officials

Scottish Refugee Council are now speaking, saying they strongly oppose the action of the Home Office.

Glasgow lawyer Aamer Anwar claims at protest that the Home Office choosing today to remove these men was “deliberate, provocative and deliberately intended to incite this.”
