A claim for damages or for an order demanding your release can be made where you have been detained by the state when you should not have been for any period of time.
Many bodies have the power to detain including the home office, police, immigration control and prisons. A claim for false imprisonment will exist if you are held outside the powers of these organisations including if you are seeking asylum in the UK but have been held in an immigration removal centre unlawfully.
