Plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda faces more delay as charities set to take government to court again | The Sun

THE Rwanda deportation scheme faces even MORE delays after activists were given permission today to take the government to court again.

In December a group of charities challenged plans by the Home Office to fly illegal migrants to Rwanda for processing and settlement.

The High Court ruled the scheme as legal, but today individual claimants and the charity Asylum Aid were granted permission to challenge the decision at the Court of Appeal.

No date for a hearing has been set yet.

Ministers were widely expecting the High Court ruling to be challenged by left wing activists.

But they will continue fighting in the courts until deportation flights can finally take off.

The government insists the £140m Rwanda policy is vital to stopping the small boats crisis in the Channel.
