Sunak: The court’s suspension of the Rwanda plan was wrong and we will appeal

Rishi Sunak says he ‘fundamentally disagrees’ with Court of Appeal, ruling against Rwanda’s asylum scheme.

The government wants to send asylum seekers to the East African country, in part to prevent border crossings in small boats

But two out of three judges have concluded Rwanda is not a ‘safe country’ – as asylum seekers could be sent back to their country of origin.

Sunak says the government will ask permission to appeal to the Supreme Court

“It is this country – and your government – that will decide who comes here, not the criminal gangs,” he said.

The Rwandan government also ‘challenged’ the decision – claiming it is one of the safest countries in the world
