Filing USM claims in CSD custodial institutions

We're waiting for H. Y. Fung to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Correctional Services Department,

I am writing to make an information access request regarding migrants (ie. Non-local persons) who file a claim under the Unified Screening Mechanism (USM) while held in a CSD institution. May I know,

A) For non-local persons in custody within CSD institutions, what is the relevant procedure for raising a USM claim?

B) What are the procedures / guidelines that follow after a claim is raised (ie. In relation to access to humanitarian assistance, whether the person in custody would be transferred to detention or placed under recognisance, etc)?

C) For both A) and B), would it be possible to provide a copy of the relevant procedures / guidelines?

Thank you very much for your help in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

H. Y. Fung
