▍「他們只管逼迫我們服從規則」

第一次見到P的那天,正是青山灣入境事務中心(CIC)發現一例Covid-19確診病例的第二天。我帶了一些消毒濕紙巾給她,卻被告知每位被羈留者每個月只可以收取3包濕紙巾(每包10張),P當月已收到過一次,入境處職員說只能等下個月再來了。我問P,CIC內的防疫措施有加強嗎?她說並沒有,「廁所依然很髒,沒有一處是乾淨的,那些污水從廁所流到地上,有時流到我們坐著的地板上⋯⋯」她非常擔心。

她說裡面的清潔工們年紀都很老,普遍六十歲以上,他們根本沒辦法處理如此骯髒的環境。P說自己曾嘗試向入境處職員詢問廁所刷,想自行清潔廁所,結果職員卻只給了她兩隻牙刷。她投訴,結果卻來了二十幾個職員圍住她,以她情緒激動為由送她去見醫生。而,醫生沒有任何診斷,直接把她關進了禁閉室,一間不足三米寬的小房內,沒有窗戶、沒有風扇、充滿惡臭,看起來從來沒有清潔過,她甚至不被允許穿鞋,只給了一塊令她皮膚痕癢的小毛毯。只是想主動清掃廁所,卻被關禁閉,她憤而繼續投訴上一級職員,才得以離開禁閉室。後來,我從其他探訪者口中聽到類似的事情,另一位來自尼日利亞的男性被羈留者亦曾經向入境處職員詢問廁所刷,結果同樣收到兩隻牙刷。

她說CIC中的女性被羈留者們經常被懲罰,「這裡有太多規則,他們只管逼迫我們服從規則,但有時甚至每一個職員都有其各自一套規則,根本難以聽從所有規則,於是不停被懲罰。」她說甚至試過僅僅只是某職員叫她的號碼(每一個被羈留者在CIC內被以號碼稱呼),她剛好在想事情而沒有立刻回應職員,因此被懲罰做清潔。她說另一位女性被羈留者只是因為綁頭髮的方式不符合某職員的要求,而被指罵良久,她忍不住回了一句「Shut up」,結果被關了七日禁閉。

P來自坦桑尼亞,來港數年幾乎都是在懲教所度過,之後被直接送來CIC,她說這裡是她待過的最糟糕的地方。「他們剝奪了我的一切,把我困在這裡讓我絕望。我覺得我可以依然堅強,自己撐住。我很擔心那些甚至無法自己支撐的人。」

▍"They just force us to obey all the rules"

The day I saw P for the first time was the day after the first confirmed case of Covid-19 was discovered in the Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre (CIC). I brought some disinfectant wipes to her, but was told that each detainee can only receive three packs of wipes (10 pieces per pack) per month. P has received them once this month, and the immigration officer said that she has to wait until next month. I asked P, have the epidemic prevention measures in CIC been strengthened? She said no, “The toilet is never clean. Everything is wet. The sewage flows from the toilet to the ground, sometimes on the floor where we are sitting…" She was very worried.

P said that the cleaners working inside were very old, generally over 60 years old, and that they simply couldn’t handle such a dirty job. P said that she had tried to ask the officer for a toilet brush and wanted to clean the toilet by herself, but the officer only gave her two toothbrushes. She complained, and then more than 20 officers came to surround her and sent her to the doctor saying that she was acting furious. However, the doctor did not make any diagnosis and put her in the isolation room straight away. The isolation room is very small, less than three meters wide, no windows, no fans and has a foul smell. It seemed that this room had never been cleaned, and she was not even allowed to wear shoes. They only gave her a small and smelly blanket that made her skin itchy. She just wanted to clean the toilet, but ended up being locked inside an isolation room. She was angry and continued to complain to the high-level officer until she was able to leave the isolation room. Later, I heard similar things from other visitors. Another male detainee from Nigeria also asked an officer for a toilet brush, and also received two toothbrushes.

P said that female detainees in CIC are frequently punished. “There are too many rules here, they just force us to obey all the rules, but even every officer has his/her own set of rules. It is difficult to follow all the rules, so we are being punished constantly.” Once she got punished for cleaning, just because she didn’t immediately respond to an officer calling her number, when she was in her own thoughts and also surrounded by a lot of noise. P said that another female detainee was shouted at for a long time because the way her hair was tied did not meet the requirements of a certain officer. She couldn’t help it and replied “Shut up" and was then locked in an isolation room for seven days.

P is from Tanzania. She spent a few years in a prison in Hong Kong before being sent directly to CIC. She said that this is the worst place she has ever stayed in.“They took everything from me, they keep us here and make us hopeless. I felt that I could still be strong, to stand up for myself. I am worried for those who are unable to stand up for themselves.”
