Synod Moderator Revd Dr David Pickering signs #LOCKEDINLIMBO statement

Synod Moderator, Revd Dr David Pickering, signed #LOCKEDINLIMBO statement on behalf of the National Synod of Scotland:

Imagine not being able to access a birth certificate, a passport, or an identity card. Imagine that this means you are constantly threatened with arbitrary detention.

Stateless people in the UK are often detained for months and even years, unable to leave because no other country will accept them. UK operates one of the harshest detention systems in Europe, with no time limit on how long someone can be held in detention.
