Glasgow stabbings: Concerns over asylum hotel plan ahead of incident back in 2019:
By Reevel Alderson Home affairs correspondent, BBC
The mass stabbings in a Glasgow hotel have once again brought the treatment of asylum seekers into focus: Charities and MPs have raised concerns over living conditions in city centre hotels, where asylum seekers were moved when lockdown was imposed……………On Friday, six people were injured and the suspect shot dead during the incident at the Park Inn Hotel…………Of the injured, three were asylum seekers, two were hotel staff and one was a police officer.
The Scottish government has told the Home Office it expects a “thorough investigation” into the treatment of asylum seekers in Glasgow during the coronavirus lockdown, after a Sudanese man stabbed six people including a police officer at a city centre hotel before being shot dead by police: The warning came as outreach agencies demanded immediate practical support for those asylum seekers worst affected by Friday’s events, and after claims emerged that staff at the Park Inn hotel were told of concerns about 28-year-old Badreddin Abedlla Adam’s mental health the night before he carried out his attack.
On Sunday, local charities appealed for food, phones and phone chargers, as well as men’s and women’s clothing for distressed Park Inn residents who were moved late on Friday night to another hotel but have been unable to access their possessions since because the building remains a crime scene: A Home Office spokesperson said: “Throughout this pandemic, we have prioritised providing asylum seekers who would otherwise be destitute with free and safe accommodation that enables public health guidance to be followed. They have access to healthcare and all of their essential living needs and costs are met.”
The Park Inn was one of six hotels in Glasgow where an estimated 380 asylum seekers were moved en masse from their individual accommodation by the private housing provider Mears at the start of the lockdown, and is thought to have been the only one to house women.
