Product Description

Review

This book will be an up to date source of information for detainees, their advisers and others concerned with making and reviewing decisions to detain and remove ... The authors are to be congratulated and it is likely that this book will join the body of long-established works in the libraries of those concerned with questions relating to the imprisonment of foreign nationals. --Sir Nicholas Blake, from his foreword.

Product Description

Foreign National Prisoners: law and practice is the first inter-disciplinary guide to the immigration law, prison law and false imprisonment aspects of legal challenges brought by foreign national prisoners and former prisoners (FNPs). The book provides a detailed analysis and critique of the case-law from the domestic, Strasbourg and Luxembourg courts; a comprehensive overview of the relevant legislation and prison and Home Office policies; and practical guidance.

FOR IMMIGRATION LAW AND PRISON LAW PRACTITIONERS: A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY OVERVIEW CONTAINING A NUMBER OF FIRSTS

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

One of the latest publications from the Legal Action Group, this ambitious new work takes as its theme the treatment of foreign national prisoners in the UK. In the foreword, Sir Nicholas Blake points out the major and obvious difference between the plight of a foreign national prisoner and that of a British national - and that is, the foreign prisoner faces deportation as well as the service of his or her sentence.

In this major new work on such a difficult and complex subject, the grim process of deportation and the exemptions to deportation are carefully examined and certainly, in a number of areas, the book breaks new ground, containing as it does, a number of firsts. For example, this is the first multi, or inter-disciplinary guide to immigration law, prison law and false imprisonment.

It offers the first comprehensive overview of prison law issues as they affect foreign national prisoners, including the issues of curfew, early removal, repatriation and the management of mentally ill prisoners. Other firsts include: an in-depth examination of the best interests of the child in expulsion and detention cases... and the law and procedure of appeals in the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC).

The book is logically divided into three parts, with Part I - predictably the longest part - dealing with expulsion, which, as the author explains, is `the umbrella term referring to administrative removal and deportation.

FOR IMMIGRATION LAW AND PRISON LAW PRACTITIONERS: A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY OVERVIEW CONTAINING A NUMBER OF FIRSTS

In the foreword, Sir Nicholas Blake points out the major and obvious difference between the plight of a foreign national prisoner and that of a British national - and that is, the foreign prisoner faces deportation as well as the service of his or her sentence.

In this major new work on such a difficult and complex subject, the grim process of deportation and the exemptions to deportation are carefully examined and certainly, in a number of areas, the book breaks new ground, containing as it does, a number of firsts. For example, this is the first multi, or inter-disciplinary guide to immigration law, prison law and false imprisonment.

It offers the first comprehensive overview of prison law issues as they affect foreign national prisoners, including the issues of curfew, early removal, repatriation and the management of mentally ill prisoners. Other firsts include: an in-depth examination of the best interests of the child in expulsion and detention cases... and the law and procedure of appeals in the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC).

The book is logically divided into three parts, with Part I - predictably the longest part - dealing with expulsion, which, as the author explains, is `the umbrella term referring to administrative removal and deportation.' Indeed the book guides the reader through the deportation process under EU law and also under a number of other conventions and directives. Prison law - a distinct field -- is dealt with in Part II, while Part III concerns immigration detention.

As the book covers a wide area of law, straddling a number of disciplines, the authors have aimed to focus on issues specific to FNPs. To this end, this thoroughly researched volume of almost 900 pages also includes, for example, a comprehensive analysis of the law and practice of deportation under the UK Borders Act 2007, an overview of the EHCR's Article 8 in criminal deportation cases and. of course, much more.

The book is also a rich and valuable research resource, as it includes tables of cases, statutes and statutory instruments, as well as a table of EU and international legislation, plus a detailed index at the back,

In the words of Sir Nicholas Blake, `it is useful to have all aspects of the law relating to the detention of foreigners all in one place.' Without doubt, this book is a boon to immigration law and prison law practitioners, as well as others directly and operationally involved in this field. The law is stated as at January 2012.
