    Refugees seeking asylum in the UK will be flown 4,500 miles to Rwanda.

    At the UN last year, the UK demanded investigations into alleged killings, disappearances and torture. According to a 2020 Human Rights Watch report, detainees in the country suffer from arbitrary detention, ill-treatment, and torture in official and unofficial facilities.

    Last week refugees minister Lord Richard Harrington told LBC radio he had no knowledge of the plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda for processing.

    “I’m having difficulty enough getting them from Ukraine to our country, there’s no possibility of sending them to Rwanda,” he said.

    The UK’s proposal to send some migrants who arrive in Britain on small boats to Rwanda is a breach of international law, the UN’s refugee agency has said.

    The UNHCR called it a “troubling development” and said the UK was seeking to “shift responsibility”.

    It used to be called transportation. The scheme is not going to work anyway. If there really were opportunities for jobs in Rwanda people would be moving there from nearer countries. The most likely outcome is that the Rwandan authorities will take the money and, after a year or so, run to somewhere like Switzerland or the Cayman Islands leaving the transported Kurds and Afghans destitute. It’s so predictable.
