    London is not allowed to send asylum seekers to Rwanda – DW – 06/29/2023

    The British government has failed in court with its plans to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda. An appeals court in London ruled that Conservative Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s plan was unlawful. The judges ruled by majority that Rwanda cannot be considered a safe third country. The reason for this are deficiencies in the asylum procedure there. It cannot be ruled out that people seeking protection from Rwanda will be deported back to their home countries, even though they have a right to asylum. The decision can still be appealed to the UK Supreme Court.

    Regardless of origin to Rwanda

    Braverman’s plans envisage that people who have entered the UK irregularly – regardless of their origin and without their asylum application being examined – will be detained and deported to Rwanda as soon as possible. They should then apply for asylum there. A return to Great Britain is not planned. There is an agreement to this effect with the government in Kigali, which has repeatedly been criticized by civil rights activists for violating human rights.

    The British government wants to deter migrants who enter the English Channel irregularly in small boats. Last year, more than 45,000 people came to Great Britain this way – although conservative forces had announced that Brexit would reduce migration.

    Hotel accommodation costs high

    The plan by Braverman and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had been sharply criticized internationally. Human rights activists called it a violation of international obligations. The UK has not built capacity to take in migrants and has not had a readmission agreement with the EU since Brexit. Many people are therefore accommodated in hotels, which causes high costs for taxpayers.
