UK: Woman deported to Singapore despite 27-year marriage
Feb.27, London: A woman who has been married to a British man for 27 years has been deported to Singapore without any warning.
Irene Clennel was being held in a Scottish detention centre, but has now been sent back to her country of origin without warning, reports said.
Clennel had been living near Durham with her husband before being detained, and has two British sons, as well as a granddaughter, in the UK.
The Home Office said it did not comment on individual cases.
Clennel told the media that she was put in a van and taken to the airport from the Dungavel Detention Centre in South Lanarkshire on Saturday.
She had been held at the facility since the start of February.
She told the BBC she was unable to contact her lawyer and did not have the chance to get any clothes from her home.
