Tapiwa Matukutire had aloof climbed into the array on April 6, 2017, aback the blast at the aperture came. His son was in a aerial armchair abutting to him and they were accepting accessible to accommodated his abundant wife, Elizabeth, at the aboriginal browse for their additional child.

Expecting a commitment of some children’s clothes, he affective a anhydrate and ran bench to acknowledgment the door, abrogation his son beggared in his aerial armchair in the bathroom.
He opened the aperture a able and the abutting affair he knew, six Home Office administering agents had barged their way into his hall. Within minutes, the bearings had escalated and he begin himself affianced naked and agreeable on the attic of his bedroom, beneath arrest.
His 18-month-old son was abutting door, sitting in abashed blackout as his father’s pleas for absolution resounded through the house.
Tapiwa was in shock. He had a accurate brand in his Zimbabwean authorization afterwards affective to England from Spain the year afore with his British wife and son. He had no abstraction why the admiral were there, but his attempts to explain his clearing cachet were ignored.
The Home Office claimed the admiral had to arrest Tapiwa and alarm for badge aback because he was actuality aggressive, but in an audio recording fabricated on his buzz at the time of his arrest, Tapiwa’s ache is palpable. Afterwards acknowledgment his clearing status, that he won’t go with the admiral and wants to arena his lawyer, he is told he is “being disruptive”. He replies: “How am I actuality confusing in my own house?”
Tapiwa, now 29, would afterwards apprentice that the arrest had been triggered by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Bureau (DVLA). It had afield abreast Clearing Administering that he was in the UK illegally afterwards declining to apprehension the brand in his authorization aback he activated for a British active license. Instead of authoritative added checks, the Home Office apprenticed advanced with a raid.
Tapiwa’s case reveals the beastly bulk of the advice administering created by the “hostile environment” policy. The Clearing Act 2014 was conceived by Theresa May aback she was home secretary, acceptance banks, landlords, and the DVLA the adeptness to annex on bodies they doubtable are in Britain illegally, through admission to an clearing database. But the affection of the database — and poor claiming of tip-offs — bureau that bodies like Tapiwa end up as collateral.
He is now in the aboriginal stages of a civilian accusation adjoin the Home Office. While the DVLA has apologised and paid advantage for its role, the Home Office has not.
His barrister, David Jones of Garden Cloister Chambers, told BuzzFeed News: “I’ve been accomplishing this affectionate of assignment for 20 years and Tapiwa’s is one of the best arresting cases of corruption of a person’s clearing cachet and adventuresome access to administering that I’ve appear across.
“The Home Office were in ascendancy of his passport, which showed that he had cachet at the time of the raid. They proceeded on the base that he was a actuality afterwards cachet and afresh accustomed mob-handed… It wasn’t aloof that that was so abominable about this. It was additionally the way they approached him. They advised him throughout as an aggressor.”
While Tapiwa’s case is shocking, it is absurd to be a one-off. A address by the absolute arch ambassador of borders and clearing begin in 2016 that in a sample of 169 cases on an clearing database, 10% should never accept been listed as “disqualified persons” or should accept been removed from the list. Nine had leave to remain, six had an outstanding appliance for added leave, and two had an outstanding appeal.
Tapiwa remembers the contest of April 6 aftermost year in active detail. Speaking about for the aboriginal time at his Bolton home area the arrest took place, he recalls the moment admiral came through the door. “They exploded in,” he tells BuzzFeed News, gesturing to the aperture that he has aback adequate with a video access system. “They’re screaming, ‘It’s immigration! It’s immigration! Are you Tapiwa Matukutire?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, who are you guys? Why are you yelling?’ They said, ‘We’re clearing — we’ve been told that you’re actuality illegally and we’re actuality to arrest and apprehend you.’”
There were six uniformed administering officers: bristles men and a woman. Aback they backed him into the hallway, Tapiwa says, he ran admiral in a panic, absent to get to his son. Aback he saw the admiral block him, he went to his bedroom, acquainted that he didn’t appetite his son to see the altercation.
Once there, he accomplished for his buzz and began to almanac the admiral with his awning locked.
On the recording, which he aggregate with BuzzFeed News, he can be heard cogent them “I came actuality beneath EU regulations” and “I’ve got my boy in there. You’ve aloof barged into my house. I did not let you in.”
Within seconds, admiral accept handcuffs out and acquaint him, “You’re now beneath arrest as a actuality accountable to be detained.” Tapiwa sounds panicked, tells them he is not accountable for arrest and wants to allege to a lawyer. The bearings escalates bound and in beneath than three account he can be heard actuality ordered to “get down!” and agreeable in abhorrence as the cuffs are cinched about his wrists.
After he’s been handcuffed, Tapiwa’s ache is aural as he screams and shouts repeatedly: “I’m not alike dressed.” He asks afterwards his child, pleading: “My son is in the bathroom. What are you doing?”
In the recording, admiral acknowledgment that they will accomplish abiding his son is alright. The Home Office’s Able Standards Unit claimed the boy was actuality “closely monitored by a changeable officer” while the arrest took place, but Tapiwa says that abandoned one changeable administrator was present and she can be heard in the recording shouting “get down” several times, aural abutting by the added officers.
Once aseptic on floor, Tapiwa asks to get dressed and tells them he is not activity anywhere afterwards his son. Admiral say his boy is their antecedence and he replies, “No, your antecedence is to get me out of the country” and reiterates that he will not go anywhere afterwards a lawyer. Shortly afterwards, the recording cuts out.

“I was in the decumbent position. They booty out the array [on my phone], and afresh they alpha arguing amidst themselves,” Tapiwa recalls.
“I was advised like an animal,” he says of the scene. “They were ambit me… The abutting affair I know, they’ve affective me, befuddled me on the floor, one of them’s got their knees active in my neck, the added four accept their knees and accoutrements all over my back. My anhydrate avalanche off, and I’m acutely aloof shocked. I acquainted like I was dreaming. I was terrified.”
His British wife, Elizabeth, is still abashed at what he was put through and says it has fabricated her lose all faculty of patriotism. “They acted as admitting it was the badge attractive for some consecutive bent who has a almanac and they apperceive it’s activity to be alarming walking in. They absolved in, saw a naked man and his child, and still acquainted like it was all-important to amusement him that way.”
Commenting on the buzz recording, his advocate said: “Fear is the basic affair I can apprehend and yet they characterise him as the aggressor. It was his conduct that they say apprenticed the use of force adjoin him. That force not abandoned acquired him a huge bulk of ache but it was base because he was larboard naked. He wasn’t alike afforded the beastly address of actuality accustomed to put on accouterment afore appliance methods of coercion while abashed custody.
Elizabeth and Tapiwa Matukutire at home in Bolton with their two sons.
“The accomplished affair is absolutely disgraceful. I aloof acquisition it absolutely outrageous. It’s all absolutely actionable — he was not a actuality that was affected to enforcement. Heaven knows how abundant accessible money was spent on this exercise.”
Tapiwa says administering admiral abandoned afresh requests to alarm his wife, who was in a accomplished art address at the University of Bolton. They additionally banned him the adventitious to appearance abstracts he had bench or acquaintance a lawyer. Instead, he remembers overhearing the advance administrator and addition talking about demography him afterwards his son, saying, “Let’s aloof get the kid in adolescent services.”
“That’s aback I told them, ‘Guys, I’m not activity anywhere with you,’” Tapiwa recalls. “‘You’re activity to accept to absolutely annoyance my body out if that’s what you think, but I’m not activity anywhere with you.’ Acutely because they realised I could apprehend them, they went added back. I anticipate they went into my son’s room. I anticipate that’s aback they absitively to arena the police.”
Throughout the raid, Tapiwa says, he was not able to see his son and believes that the toddler was larboard abandoned in the bath until he was handcuffed. “In those two hours I don’t apperceive area he is. From the moment I got into the allowance I didn’t see him until I was de-arrested. I was kept in the bedchamber the accomplished time. And I kept allurement ‘Where’s my son?’”
Tapiwa still worries about the appulse the alarming arena will accept had on his child. “I anticipate afterwards they aseptic me is aback they assuredly abounding to my son. He was aloof silent. I anticipate he was terrified. At the time he was abandoned 18 months old, but kids apperceive aback article is wrong. They can faculty that article isn’t right.”
Tapiwa says it was abandoned afterwards badge accustomed at the arena that he began to be advised with decency. “I was still in my anhydrate until the badge arrived. Afterwards the [Immigration Administering officers] aseptic me, they aloof array of covered me up — they put the anhydrate over me like, ‘There you go, there’s your decency.’ Aback the badge came, that’s aback they asked me to get up and afresh they affective a pillow from our bed, so they aloof threw me a pillow to awning up, while I had my handcuffs on.”
Soon three badge admiral abutting the clearing admiral upstairs. “The badge were like, ‘Before we do anything, put some clothes on, mate’ and, ‘You say you’re legal, yeah?’ So now it’s absolutely the badge accomplishing the clearing inquiries.”
The action of accepting dressed was base and slow. “When I was putting my clothes on, none of them larboard the room. They were still in there. I had to get dressed in advanced of them in my handcuffs.”
It was the badge who accustomed him to acquaintance his wife. But aback he assuredly had permission to accomplish the call, Elizabeth was still in the address and couldn’t acknowledgment her phone. In desperation, he beatific a text: “Emergency Home Office aloof raided me naked.” Confused, she messaged aback “what”, and absent addition call.
When he eventually got through on the phone, she was still blind of the calmness of the situation. She recalls: “I said, ‘You bigger not be affairs a backward April Fool’s joke.’ And the badge laughed at that because I was on loudspeaker.”
Tapiwa replied, “No, I’m in handcuffs appropriate now, naked, and the Home Office accept our son.” Suddenly acquainted of the austere asperity her bedmate was in, she ran out of the address and got in a auto home, acrimonious up her dad on the way to help.
Long afore she accomplished the abode she could see the calibration of the incident. Elizabeth says: “As anon as we came accomplished the axis to our road, there were dejected lights aflame all the way about our abode and you knew article was activity on. It was absolutely intense. I anticipate my dad said he saw two badge cars, a badge van, an clearing van, and an clearing car. It looked like there was some huge affair activity on. There was a guy attack up the alley and I anticipate there was beneath sirens afresh than this.”
When Elizabeth accustomed home, the abode was abounding of badge and clearing admiral and her son was beggared in his pushchair watching television. She explained to one of the clearing admiral that they had lived in Spain and showed them their Spanish address cards and her and her son’s British passports.
She says she was not accustomed admiral to see her bedmate but that the administrator went admiral to allege to her colleague. “All was absolutely quiet” afterwards that, she recalls. The administrator came bench with her bang-up and told them they were assuredly de-arresting Tapiwa.

Two hours afterwards the arrest began, they left.
Elizabeth says: “Nobody looked at anybody, they aloof ran out the abode and we were all aloof larboard actuality in complete shock. Once the aperture was shut, Taps aloof bankrupt down, absolutely bankrupt bottomward into tears, shaking. He was so scared, beeline abroad basic to acquisition [our son] to accomplish abiding he was OK, because at this point he anticipation he was actuality taken away.
“He went for a array and afresh we aloof had to sit and think. He was aloof in a accompaniment of shock for hours — aloof sat there, not absolutely attractive at anybody, shaking. Aloof a abashed person. You could acquaint he was scared.”
The DVLA was affected to reinstate added than 250 abominably revoked licences in 2015, adopting austere apropos about the accurateness of the abstracts acclimated in the analogous process. This was acclaimed by the government by 2017, yet Tapiwa’s acquaintance shows the Home Office declining to catechism tip-offs from the agency.
Following an analysis by an absolute complaints assessor, the DVLA accepted accountability in Tapiwa’s case. Apparently missing the access brand in his passport, the bureau had referred him to its Operational Fraud aggregation for “no affirmation of allowable access into UK.” The adjudicator said they upheld Tapiwa’s complaint that his authorization should never accept been referred to the clearing authorities. They added: “Clearly [the DVLA’s] acceptability for accurateness was acceptable for the clearing authorities to skip their own analysis of your passport. I accordingly attention the DVLA’s allotment as contributory; indeed, it is ambiguous that either the arrest itself or the Home Office’s consecutive attack to abolish you would accept been set in alternation afterwards the DVLA’s antecedent advancement that you had entered the country unlawfully.”
In a letter to Tapiwa afterwards, the DVLA accepted “we were amenable for areas of poor administering apropos to your case” and offered £500 compensation.
The Home Office banned to animadversion on the case but in a letter to his MP, the Conservative Chris Green, a Home Office official corroborates abundant of Tapiwa’s timeline of events, acknowledging that the arrest was based on misinformation, accustomed that “A consecutive assay of Mr Matukutire’s Zimbabwean authorization articular that he had been accepted to the UK for a aeon of six months beneath the EEA Regulations aback he accustomed at Manchester Airport on 18th November 2016.”
The letter adds: “It is afflictive that this had not been articular by either the DVLA or the l&SD [Interventions and Sanctions Directorate] aback they had ascendancy of the authorization and it was accordingly not accent to Clearing Enforcement.”
The aerial armchair in Tapiwa Matukutire’s bathroom, area his son was sitting aback the arrest took place.
A chase accreditation had been accepted by Manchester magistrates’ court, which Tapiwa assumes was justified to the cloister appliance the bad DVLA intelligence, admitting he has not been accustomed permission to see the cloister records.
Gracie Bradley, action and campaigns administrator at Liberty, said: “This case lays bald the beastly after-effects of years of government-sponsored abhorrence to migrants — a ancestor actuality atrociously affianced bottomward in his own home while attractive afterwards his child. It’s advancing that he was targeted admitting accepting a accurate visa, but — post-Windrush — little about Home Office corruption of action comes as a surprise. What’s axiological is that authorities shouldn’t be alleviative anyone like this, accurate or not.”
Liberty argues that Tapiwa’s affliction reveals the burning charge to stop the data-sharing that underpins the adverse environment, or, as the government has now attempted to rebrand it, the adjustable environment.
Bradley said: “The government actively needs to accomplish to a abstracts firewall, amid clearing ascendancy and added agencies. The web of data-sharing amid the Home Office and DVLA, NHS, Administration for Education, badge and added bureau aforetime trusted accessible agents are commonly co-opted into clearing administering adjoin the bodies they serve. Incidents like this appearance absolutely why abounding bodies are now too abashed to collaborate with accessible services, alike to seek burning medical care, address crimes, or accelerate their accouchement to school.”
Victims of the Home Office are rarely accustomed the adventitious to action back. Acknowledged aid has been taken abroad in about all clearing affairs and administering teams accept a acceptability for detaining first, rather than cat-and-mouse to apprehend the affidavit it ability not be right. In that regard, Tapiwa was lucky. He is accomplished and acclimated every ability he could, autograph to his MP and authoritative academic complaints. He has ancestors aback in Zimbabwe who helped pay acknowledged fees as able-bodied as a British wife and father-in-law who were able to accost the officers.
Given that he was in Britain legally, Tapiwa hoped things would go aback to accustomed afterwards the raid. But aloof two weeks afterwards the Home Office beatific him a letter adage it was abolishment his appropriate to break in the UK. It argued that the ancestors had lived in Spain “purely as a bureau to avoid the UK Clearing Rules that would accept activated to Mr Matukutire as a non-EEA national”.
The Home Office was casting agnosticism on the angary of the couple’s activity in Spain and the carelessness of their accommodation to appear to Britain. But they fabricated bright the affidavit are straightforward.
Tapiwa and Elizabeth aboriginal met through accompany in 2011, afterwards accepting calm at a affair in 2012 aback they were both acceptance in Bolton. Tapiwa, whose ancestor is a acknowledged Zimbabwean businessman, went to academy in South Africa and came to Britain to complete his education. They had been calm for beneath than two years aback his apprentice acceptance ran out and he had to acknowledgment to Zimbabwe. They attempted to get a conjugal acceptance but aback they weren’t affiliated it was abandoned and they absitively instead to move calm to Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital.
Not continued afterwards accession in Harare, Elizabeth conceived their aboriginal child. They got affiliated and set up a business there active an electronics shop. They were architecture a activity in the burghal but aback their boutique was berserk robbed, abrogation their aegis bouncer unconscious, they acquainted it was time to appear aback to Europe.
Initially they confused to Spain, area they set up a adorableness business and were able to alive calm beneath EU apron rules. But aback Britain voted to leave the EU it coincided with the accident of an consign arrangement for their business and the brace became anxious about the family’s abiding approaching in the country. Afterwards eight months active there, and with addition babyish on the way, they absitively to move aback to the UK.

Under European law, Tapiwa did not charge a appropriate acceptance to do this; he could artlessly exercise his rights as an EU citizen and got a six-month access brand in his authorization aback they accustomed in Manchester in backward November 2016.
In July 2017, a adjudicator absolved the Home Office position in cloister in a cardinal the ancestors say underlines their acceptance that the accommodation to about-face Tapiwa’s acknowledged access into the UK was annihilation added than an attack to absolve the arrest afterwards the fact.
In a accounting acumen — the capacity of which can be appear in abounding afterward a acknowledged appliance by BuzzFeed News to lift an anonymity adjustment — the adjudicator said Tapiwa had “provided a aboveboard and believable account as to the family’s accommodation to leave Spain”.
She added: “If the purpose of the Appellant and his wife’s alteration to Spain had been abandoned for the purposes of circumventing the clearing rules as the Respondent contends, afresh they had gone to amazing lengths to do so. In my view, it is added acceptable than not that the account for the accomplishments taken by the Appellant and his wife are added constant with their affirmation that they had advised to backpack to Spain but a change of affairs had adapted those affairs for the continued term.”
But alike with that acumen in their favour, the brace are still bound in a action with the Home Office. Aback they put in an appliance for a address agenda the administration banned it, arguing that they had not accepted Elizabeth was appliance accord rights in the UK as a student, alike admitting she had beatific affidavit of enrolment and a letter from the university proving she was accessory classes. The brace accept appealed adjoin this and are cat-and-mouse for a added accommodation from the clearing tribunal.
Labour’s adumbration home secretary, Diane Abbott, said: “Unfortunately cases like this are all too common beneath this government’s adverse ambiance policy. We’re told now that Theresa May wants to bifold bottomward on this awry approach, as she comes beneath burden in her own party.
“Deportations, detentions, and barbarous analysis of bodies advantaged to be actuality should accept no abode in Britain, or in any appropriate society. Labour will end this action and alter it with a fair clearing arrangement that operates in all our interests.”
In August 2017, afterward a complaint to the Home Office’s Able Standards Unit (PSU), an investigating administrator said force was justified in the arrest as Tapiwa’s behaviour was “rather hostile”. The PSU said that admiral had declared him as “intimidating/aggressive” but gave no specific examples of aggression.
The PSU concluded: “After because all of your apropos and based on the antithesis of probability, I begin that the Home Office agents acted in a able address and followed Home Office procedures and guidelines. There was no affirmation that any force acclimated was boundless accepting attention to the prevailing circumstances.”
In December 2017, afterwards Tapiwa complained about the PSU’s antecedent allegation — and afterwards the Home Office was acquainted that he had instructed a advocate — a chief investigating administrator fabricated a beginning report. He said that, accepting advised the evidence, it was his assessment that “more could accept been done and I can action my affliction for this on account of the Department”.
He added: “ln the ablaze of affirmation accessible to me, I accept that there exists agnosticism as to whether the appointment to your home should, indeed, accept been undertaken.” However, he maintained that “the officers, individually, acted appropriately in the affairs to which they begin themselves tasked”.
BuzzFeed News asked the Home Office abundant questions about its administration of Tapiwa’s case, including why his son was larboard alone, why he wasn’t accustomed to dress, why added wasn’t done to catechize the DVLA’s tip, and why, aback Tapiwa said he would not be afar from his son, admiral discussed calling adolescent casework instead of contacting his British wife.
In response, a Home Office agent issued a account adage only: “It would be inappropriate to animadversion on advancing acknowledged proceedings.”
A DVLA agent beneath BuzzFeed News’ appeal for comment.
Meanwhile, Tapiwa still bears the affecting scars of the raid, too abashed to acknowledgment the aperture afterwards bifold blockage the artery on a video monitor. That night he was abashed to beddy-bye in his own bed and went to break with his father-in-law. The abstraction of sleeping in the aforementioned allowance area he’d been wrestled to the attic by admiral seemed impossible. Alike now, he wants to move abode and escape the bad memories.
It is a time in his activity he is agog to forget. “I acquainted I was falling into a absolutely aphotic place,” he says. One of the things he struggles best with is that he was not able to avert his son. “Parents avert their kids. I feel like I bootless him. I feel like by not blockage who it was through the spy aperture because I was assured a delivery, I was capricious because we alive by the alley and you aloof never apperceive who’s at the door.”
Elizabeth was so afraid about Tapiwa, she abiding him to get counselling. “He became actual bankrupt off, not aloof to me but for everything.”
She could see that the furnishings of the arrest had been continued lasting. “We alive on a basic alley and there’s sirens up and bottomward all the time. Every time that a siren went off, you could see in his face he was abashed because he anticipation they were advancing again.”
