The Rwandan government, through a spokesperson, said it “disputes the decision that Rwanda is not a safe third country for asylum seekers and refugees.”
Intervening in the procedure , the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimated that Rwanda did not have an “accessible, reliable, fair and effective asylum system”, and recalled that it had “invariably expressed serious concerns” in this folder.
The UNHCR had stressed, the President of the Supreme Court recalled on Wednesday, that Rwanda rejected “100% of asylum requests” from countries in conflict zones such as Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, “even though the British authorities often conclude that such requests are well founded.”
