The apology came after an independent review called for ministers to apologise to entire black population of Britain. The review was carried out by Wendy Williams an inspector constabulary.
Home Secretary Patel said she was “truly sorry” for the harm inflicted on families torn apart by the wrongful deportation of people of Caribbean origin who were British.
The unqualified apology to Britain’s black African-Caribbean population was for the “serious harm” inflicted on people in the Windrush scandal, William said ministers should prove the sincerity of their apology by introducing sweeping cultural changes within the Home Office. The failing were recognised as being consistent with “institutional racism”. Since the scandal only 62k has been drummed out in compensation.
