Guards disciplined for allowing unsupervised prayer service
by Tom Godfrey
At least eight security guards at a west-end immigration detention centre are being disciplined for allowing a group of Muslim detainees to pray together, their co-workers say.
One Group 4 Security Services officer has been suspended and others sent disciplinary letters for permitting eight inmates awaiting deportation to worship together during a special prayer service last Friday, workers at the centre said.
The detainees were celebrating Jumu'ah Salah on Dec. 3 at a chapel inside an immigration detention centre, on Rexdale Blvd., according to members of Toronto's Muslim community.
