He’s not trying to run away, he’s trying to make a point.

A Lithuanian guy is in Dover Removal Centre – they can’t deport him. He’s been in pain because they’ve stopped his medication. They didn’t give it to him. He’s been asking for more treatment. The health care has been terrible recently.

This morning, he’s gone through a gate from one of the units when the officer opened it and climbed on the roof of one of the buildings. He’s on a building about 25 metres high on the other side of the building. It’s like a castle. And he’s saying that “if you come near me I’ll cut my throat or I’ll jump off the roof”. He’s not trying to run away, he’s trying to make a point. His friend says that he’s making the point that you can’t just keep people in here without proper medication.

I don’t know what they are doing about it because we are all locked in our rooms. I don’t know if they’ve called the police or not. Would they call the police? I think there are trying to do it themselves.

He is a very nice guy, he’s a very serious guy. I don’t speak his language but I was shocked when I saw him. I’m very worried for him. I don’t want him to kill himself. He’s a calm guy. But I’ve heard from his friends that he’s very angry.

I can’t see him but I called my friend – he’s been there for two hours. It’s not a joke, he’s not joking.

The management have sent a note under the door: “We are currently managing an incident and ask for your cooperation. Lunch will be served in rooms on the wings. We are working to resolve the incident shortly and as quickly as possible to enable us to return to our normal regime. Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated. Detention Centre Manager”.

I’ve told Russia Today but they say they need pictures but we can’t get the pictures. We are locked inside and we don’t have a phone to get pictures. A helicopter would see it if one came down. People should know about what happens here.
