A Northampton man killed
himself in an Oxfordshire immigration detention centre just weeks after a
prison inspector’s warning, an inquest found today.
The jury at Oxford Old Assizes returned a verdict of
suicide in the case of Moldovan-born Ianos Dragutan, who was found
hanged in a shower cubicle at Kidlington’s Campsfield House last August.
Mr Dragutan had served three months at
London’s Wandsworth Prison for possessing false documentation before
arriving at Campsfield on July 31, the court heard.
Two days later
officers told Mr Dragutan to collect his belongings for release,
although it is believed that he was also due to face questioning in
connection with a rape case.
When police arrived Mr Dragutan left the waiting room, entered the shower block and hung himself, the court heard.
