Regarding immigration detainees at TTG

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

Dear Correctional Services Department,

I am writing to make an information request regarding immigration detainees held at Tai Tam Gap Correctional Institution (TTG).

In this press release (https://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/2021...) published July 23, 2021, it states that:
“The TGCI was a minimum security institution before renovation. It has been converted into the first "Smart Prison" in Hong Kong and is used for the detention of non-refoulement claimants.”

On the TTG page on the Correctional Services Department website (https://www.csd.gov.hk/english/facility/...), it states that the type of persons in custody at TTG are:
“Male adult detainees under the provisions of the Immigration Ordinance”

As it has been over a year since the aforementioned press release has been published, may I know, does TTG currently hold individuals under immigration powers in general, or are only individuals who are non-refoulement claimants held there?

Thank you for your help with this inquiry. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
H. Y. Fung
