The UK High Court has ruled that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has twice warned Britain’s Home Office that arranging for the deportation of asylum seekers to Rwanda is illegal.

Agency attorneys have distanced themselves from the policy amid allegations that the Interior Ministry has misrepresented the UN position.

It was submitted as a legal challenge to stop the ongoing process.

The government aims to encourage people to come to the UK through the English Channel, making it clear that many cases and applications for asylum in Rwanda will no longer be considered.
