On Wednesday, the British government will introduce a bill that would allow the country to ignore decisions of the European Court of Human Rights. Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab denies the country’s withdrawal from the European Court, but once the new legislation comes into force, it will no longer be the highest body.
The reason for the new bill is the legal obstacles placed by the European Court on the British government’s plan to transfer illegal immigrants to Rwanda. It has been agreed with the African country on that.
However, the forced evictions led to lawsuits and the Human Rights Court in Strasbourg prevented the migrants’ first trip to Kigali. Home Secretary Priti Patel described the ruling as a political ruling by the judge. If the new legislation is passed, the British High Court will now have the final say.
The plan to fly asylum seekers to Rwanda was the result of the massive influx of migrants by boat across the canal. This year the meter already stands at about ten thousand migrants who crossed by boat and sometimes hundreds reach shore in one day by boat.
The European Court of Human Rights is separate from the European Union and was created to promote compliance with the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights. Britain left the European Union early last year after Britain voted to leave the European Union in 2016, but EU membership has nothing to do with the court. in Strasbourg.
