On Tuesday 14 June, an eleventh-hour ruling of the European Court of Human Rights prevented the government from implementing its inhumane policy of deporting asylum seekers to Rwanda. The Rwanda policy is subject to a judicial review challenging its legality. The European court has said that until the legality of the policy was decided in the UK, asylum seekers should not be deported there.
Predictably, the Conservative government has now launched a moral panic over our membership of the European Court of Human Rights. Successive Conservative governments have routinely denounced the body – but never followed through on their threats to leave. But we can’t be complacent. Act now. Write to your MP today.
