Britons squabble over European Court of Human Rights ruling

Background: This year alone, more than 10,000 illegal immigrants left the British coast for Britain. The British Coast Guard was forced to pick them up and take them ashore in British territorial waters of the English Channel on Tuesday at 79 crossing points. People who are on boats by human traffickers usually seek asylum.

The British government now wants to discourage them by deporting them to Rwanda – they have signed a contract with a once-genocide African country to resettle them there while their asylum application is being processed.

However, at the last moment, the European Court of Human Rights put a stick at the speaker:

An hour and a half before the take-off of the first British “relay flight”, he ordered the plane to land on the ground.

The plane was to take seven asylum seekers to Rwanda.

All this is very embarrassing for British Prime Minister and Home Secretary Boris Johnson, Priti Patel (who is herself the daughter of Indian parents who immigrated from Africa).

Boris Johnson began spreading the news about his country’s withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights, drafted by former Conservative Prime Minister Winston Churchill since the late 1940s and ratified by Britain for the first time.

He also accused the lawyers of “exploiting refugees” and “aiding human traffickers”.

British Conservative MPs – who no longer support the deal anyway because it would limit free-trade deals with countries with questionable human rights practices – have angrily called for another pullout.

Patel said they would not back down and insisted on “controlling our nation’s borders”. Meanwhile, Britain’s opposition Shadow Foreign Secretary Yvette Cooper said: “The government is pursuing a policy which they know is futile and will not rein in human traffickers. They gave £120m to Rwanda and hired a private jet that couldn’t take off.” 120 million down payment and the machine cost half a million pounds in taxpayer money.

Meanwhile, the Rwandan government has signaled its willingness to continue to fulfill its contractual obligations and take in asylum seekers the British have taken there – calling them migrants.

The European Court of Human Rights has blocked the charter flight of a 54-year-old Iraqi asylum seeker who was allegedly tortured in his home country.

The Committee noted that it did not see any guarantees that the applicants’ case would be dealt with fairly in Rwanda.

The conservative Daily Telegraph quickly found a scapegoat, a Russian judge who was still working on the committee until mid-September despite the penalties – and indicated that the court was not ready to decide which judges were hearing the case. According to the newspaper, judges from countries with questionable human rights practices, including Hungary and Azerbaijan, are among the 47 lawyers.
