Rwanda’s latest deportation flight: UK expected to appeal European court ruling, says minister

Human rights expert explains why the first flight to Rwanda was grounded

A cabinet minister said the government will appeal the ruling of the European Court of Human Rights which halted the Home Office’s trip to Rwanda last night.

Work and Pensions Minister Therese Coffey said she was “very confident” that the government would be able to move forward with its policy of deporting asylum seekers to Rwanda.

“I am sure we will return to the European Court of Human Rights to challenge this initial ruling,” she said.

It comes after Priti Patel said yesterday’s legal defeats won’t stop her from “doing the right thing”.

The Minister of Interior added: “Our legal team reviews every decision made regarding this trip and starts preparing for the next trip now.”

A Rwandan government spokesman similarly said that Tuesday’s successful legal bids would not deter her.

“Rwanda remains fully committed to the success of this partnership,” Yolande McCullough said, adding, “Rwanda is ready to receive migrants upon their arrival and give them safety and opportunities in our country.”
