The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration has raised concerns over the handling of legacy asylum and migration cases by the former UK Border Agency.
A report found that:
- There were some cases where the information contained in paper files was not being used to trace applicants
- Ministers were not informed that the proposed closure criteria used for legacy cases did not include the risks associated with not examining paper files
- The Agency had not reviewed Police National Computer (PNC) information, to obtain addresses for 3,077 positive matches, or to take action in relation to maybe matches
- Work had not yet commenced on archived cases and active reviews that had been reopened as a result or positive data matching results
