'You feel caged’: Woman released from Dungavel speaks out on life inside an immigration detention centre
Comfort Otiwaa Dwamena tells of her experience in Dungavel detention centre as threat of deportation continues
AN EDINBURGH resident of 13 years, Comfort Otiwaa Dwamena (pictured), was released from Dungavel detention centre on Tuesday (24 July) after spending fifteen nights in what she says felt “like a prison”.
“You’re there with an electric wall, with staff, and you feel caged. You feel in distress. I don’t think it’s worth it for someone to go through that,” Dwamena told CommonSpace.
