Criticism of new asylum seeker rules

The house rules and procedures published yesterday by the Reception and Integration Agency set rules on child welfare, fire safety and acceptable behaviour for residents of the centres to follow. They also identify services that each of the 53 centres should provide to the 6,358 asylum seekers currently in residence in them.

However, the Irish Refugee Council and the Free Legal Advice Centre both criticised the decision not to create an independent appeals mechanism for residents living at the centres.
