Guantanamo Bay firm to run Dungavel detention centre

A firm who run part of the Guantanamo Bay prison camp have won
the contract to manage Dungavel immigration prison. The GEO
group manage the Guantanamo Bay Migrant Operations Centre,
as well as private jails in the US. In America, the firm have
been dogged by allegations of human rights abuses, sexual
assault and negligence.

And after a series of scandals involving rioting, racism
and assault, they lost a contract to run immigration centres
in Australia. The company will take over the running of Dungavel
in September for five years. The contract is worth £25 million.
