Vic­tims of Win­drush scan­dal to tell of trauma

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

Win­drush vic­tims are be­ing in­vited to sub­mit de­tails of their or­deals as the Gov­ern­ment draws up a com­pen­sa­tion scheme for those af­fected.

The Home Of­fice launched a month-long “call for ev­i­dence” to in­form its de­vel­op­ment of a sys­tem to pro­vide re­dress for peo­ple who ex­pe­ri­enced fi­nan­cial losses be­cause of dif­fi­cul­ties prov­ing their im­mi­gra­tion sta­tus.

Sa­jid Javid, the Home Sec­re­tary, said it was the first step to­wards es­tab­lish­ing the scheme, with a con­sul­ta­tion on the proposed “tech­ni­cal de­tails” to fol­low. He said the scheme must “ef­fec­tively ad­dress the issues these peo­ple have faced” and “it is vi­tal that we lis­ten”.
