Government planned to start a series of flights that will take asylum seekers in July, but may start the program on June 24

The UK may bring forward its plan to deport asylum seekers to the Central African country of Rwanda to June 24, say documents seen exclusively by Guardian. The government planned to start the series of flights in July.

The change in schedule was presented during a trial of a legal challenge brought by the British civil servants’ union, FDA, against the UK government.

Government lawyers had told the court that deportations would begin from July 1 to 15. However, an adjustment was made based on first-d0 statementsMinister Rishi Sunak on April 22, which projected the 1st flight within 10 to 12 weeks from that date.

The deportation policy for Rwanda has faced resistance, including proposed changes to the bill by the House of Lords, such as the creation of an independent monitoring commission for deportees and exemptions for Afghans who helped British military personnel. Despite this, the House of Commons rejected these changes, keeping the project on course.

In addition to criticism from opponents of Sunak’s government, the bill also has legal concerns, including a UK High Court ruling that the measure is illegal under the European Convention on Human Rights.

Keir Starmer, leader of the opposition in the House of Commons, has promised to cancel flights immediately if he takes over as UK prime minister. Second he, refugees have the right to wait for asylum in the country.
