BRITAIN’S SUPREME COURT KICKS OFF 3-DAY HEARING ON ASYLUM SEEKERS
Written by Tunde Adeyemi on October 9, 2023
Britain’s Supreme Court is due to begin three days of hearings about the government’s plan to send some asylum seekers, who cross the English Channel, to Rwanda.
The case is being brought by the government, after the Court of Appeal ruled by a majority that the scheme broke the law.
The appeal will face opposition from 10 of the migrants, selected for transportation, and the UN refugee agency.
The government is expected to argue that human rights law is on its side, because of the detailed assurances Rwanda has given.
