Justice Secretary Ken Clarke has defended a decision not to prevent the collapse of the UK’s largest immigration law practice, the BBC reports.
Some 10,000 cases involving migrants, asylum seekers and children are in limbo after Refugee and Migrant Justice (RMJ) entered administration.
The charity with 330 staff says the government owes it £2m for work it was contracted to do.
Mr Clarke said the charity had not managed changes to legal aid. Source BBC.
Refugee and Migrant Justice (RMJ), the largest provider of specialist legal advice for asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants in England and Wales, went into administration on June 16 2010.
UNITE, the union that represents RMJ’s 340 staff, has called a demonstration outside the Ministry of Justice in London at 4pm on Friday 18th June 2010. For details see the JCWI blog.
