Boni's torture wounds. 43 year old Boni arrived in the UK in March 2005 claiming asylum and was immediately placed in detention for 16 weeks at Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre. He had been a wealthy businessman in Kinshasa, DR Congo but was arrested and detained on suspicion of opposing the ruling government. While in detention he was forced into an electric chair, was repeatedly beaten and had a knife plunged through his armpit. He was also stabbed from his chest to his groin and his torture scars remain clearly visible. His asylum claim was refused and he now waits to see how his fresh claim will fare. Boni is one of an estimated 300,000 rejected asylum seekers living in the UK.
