Escape from asylum in Rwanda raises doubts after 11th ECHR intervention | Immigration and asylum

The European Court of Human Rights made a dramatic 11-hour intervention in the government’s controversial plans to send asylum seekers to Rwanda, which could justify the first flight to the East African country.

The lawyers of one of the asylum seekers, who are due to arrive tonight, have filed a successful emergency application with the ECtHR after exhaustion of applications to the UK courts.

The decision is a blow to Boris Johnson’s flagship policy of sending asylum seekers 4,000 miles to the East African country.

This came after the Prime Minister threatened to withdraw Britain from the ECHR and accused lawyers of helping criminals exploiting refugees in the English Channel.

The original decision in the court letter stated that the asylum seeker should not be removed on Tuesday night. Sources claim that these grounds apply to all asylum seekers who are threatened with removal, so all asylum seekers who have to board the plane tonight can count on this court decision.

The court said it took particular account of UNHCR’s evidence that asylum seekers had been transferred from the UK to Rwanda will not have access to fair and effective procedures for determination.

The ruling also cites a ruling by Judge Swift, who, while refusing to ban today’s flight, said the question of whether Rwanda was considered a safe third country was irrational or based on “insufficient investigation”. “Serious issues”.

More details coming soon…
