Detainees at CIC as at April 2021

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Immigration Department should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Immigration Department,

I would appreciate if you could provide the number of detainees at the Castle Peak Bay Immigration Detention Centre as at 13 April 2021 (or any other date that is convenient to you for the purpose of collating relevant information under this request), disaggregated by:

(1) Detainees’ age (under 18, 18 – 30, 31- 40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, Above 80 or other categories as appropriate)
(2) Detainees’ sex (male, female, transgender)
(3) Detainees’ nationality
(4) Detainees’ immigration status (non-refoulement claimants (“NFCs”) within the USM, former NFCs with ongoing judicial review applications, former NFCs pending removal, illegal entrants (excluding NFCs), overstayers (excluding NFCs), persons refused entry (excluding NFCs), former foreign national prisoners pending removal and other categories as appropriate)

Thank you very much for your assistance on this.
