Candidate for British Prime Minister did not rule out the exit of the country from the ECtHR
According to Rishi Sunak, this will become possible if the ECtHR continues to block the agreement agreed upon by the UK and Rwanda on the expulsion of illegal migrants /756597364662175.webp 673w” type=”image/webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >< source srcset="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/800xH/media/img/5/17/756597364662175.webp 800w" type="image/webp" media="(max-width: 400px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)" >
The UK may consider withdrawing from the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) if other options for dealing with the migration crisis fail, said former finance minister and prime ministerial candidate Rishi Sunak.
"We may have to, no options can be ruled out"— he said, answering a question about the possible withdrawal of the UK from the ECtHR.
At the same time, Sunak promised that he would do everything possible to implement the migration policy agreed with Rwanda to ensure control of British borders.
According to British law, the government can send illegal immigrants to any safe state through which their route lay, provided that this country agrees to accept them. To expel migrants, London reached an agreement with Rwanda last year. In exchange for an upfront payment of £120 million (about $157 million), Rwanda will take migrants who entered the kingdom illegally. In this country, people will wait for their asylum applications to be processed in the UK.
Thus, in Britain they are trying to reduce the migration flow to the kingdom. Human rights organizations in Britain and the European Union called this decision “cruel”; and opposed its adoption. In particular, due to the objections of the ECHR, the UK authorities canceled the first flight for illegal migrants, which was supposed to fly to Rwanda on June 15.
The current British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his resignation retired July 7th. This happened against the backdrop of a scandal with the former deputy chief organizer of the ruling Conservative Party in the House of Commons, Chris Pincher, who was accused of harassing men. Johnson was aware of the investigations against Pincher, but at the same time appointed him to high posts.
