Jamaican Man Dies While Detained at UK Immigration Centre

The United Kingdom authorities have launched an investigation into the death of a 38-year-old Jamaican man who was detained at Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre in the country.

The man, whose identity has not yet been released, was confirmed dead by the Home Office on Tuesday.

According to UK reports, his death is the third incident at an immigration detention centre in less than a month, which has resulted in human rights campaigners expressing alarm at the incident.

It was also reported that the charity, Medical Justice, which works to improve the health of immigration detainees, has documented deaths since 2000. 

With this latest case, the death toll of those who have died in immigration detention or shortly after release since that time stands at 43.
