UNHCR has criticized Britain’s report on reducing the number of asylum seekers

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Monday criticized a statement backed by British Home Secretary Soella Braverman that called for a crackdown on asylum seekers.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees – in a statement, as reported by the British newspaper (The Guardian) on its website – described the report as containing “factual and legal errors” on asylum seekers, the British Home Secretary wrote the foreword. In a statement released by the right-wing Center for Policy Studies, “Britain would have to change its human rights laws and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights to cross the border with ‘small boats’.”

Former British Prime Minister Theresa May’s adviser, Nick Timothy, who co-authored the report, called for the indefinite detention of all asylum seekers who enter the UK illegally.

Detaining asylum seekers indefinitely is a clear breach of Britain’s obligations under the 1951 Refugee Convention, the report said, adding that “a blanket ban on small boat arrivals seeking asylum in the UK would also breach the Refugee Convention. This would result in refugees having no way of proving their status and risking their forced return to their countries.” .”

“Access to asylum should never be dependent on arrival or nationality,” the report added, adding that the only way to identify asylum seekers is through a fair and effective determination of their claims.
