In this way, they are also supposed to obtain information on how many refugees actually escape.

For now, it is not clear who the British authorities will label in this way, it is clear that they will not bo pregnant women and children.

Anyone with an electronic tag will be subjected to curfew, and if they do not meet the conditions for an asylum seeker, they will be able to return to custody or even be prosecuted. They will also need to report regularly to the police station or to center for immigrants.

As the BBC points out, the competent authorities will have to consider whether such a device could seriously harm human physical and mental health or if they have been victims of torture or modern-day slavery.
