Home Secretary Suera Braverman is under pressure for a security breach after it was revealed that it took hours to warn Britain’s top civil servants of a “misjudgment” on classified documents.

She was also scrutinized on Sunday for failing to heed legal advice regarding the long-term detention of immigrants at an asylum processing center in Manston, Kent.

At the time, Braverman said he “promptly” warned “official channels” as soon as he realized his mistake.

But on Sunday, her allies admitted that it took her hours to point out an “error of judgment” to Chief Cabinet Secretary Simon Case.

The Sunday Times said Braverman had failed to follow legal advice that thousands of asylum seekers have been illegally held for long periods in Manston.

Ember Solomon, head of the charity Refugee Council, said: “The situation at Manston is a reflection of the minister’s own disregard for official advice to take action to avoid widespread suffering on the ground. It was made by the hands of

The Home Office did not deny that Braverman had taken legal advice, but said: The deliberately ignored claim advice is completely unfounded. ”

The Home Office also said Britain’s asylum system was under “incredible pressure”, with record numbers of people arriving in the UK in small boats.
