Understanding the conditions at immigration detention centres

It is time to seek alternatives to detention - GLADY/PIXABAY

A riot broke out at a temporary immigration detention centre in Kedah, leading to 528 detainees escaping the facility and six deaths.

BFM speaks to Kenneth Cheng, a documentation and monitoring officer at human rights group Suaram, to find out more about the conditions at the detention centres as well as some of the larger issues that might have led up to the riot.
