UK Asylum Bill Under Threat, UN Says | The migrant crisis
Home Secretary Suella Braverman chats with reporters during the announcement of the Illegal Immigration Bill.
The United Nations has estimated that the bill Illegal Immigration Bill introduced by Britain on Tuesday amounted to an end to “right of asylum” and urged London to choose “more humane” responses.
The law, if passed, will amount to ending the right to asylum – depriving those who arrive in the UK illegally of the right to seek the protection afforded to a refugee, regardless of authenticity and authenticity. #x27;urgency of their request, the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a statement, calling for it to be reviewed.
Indicating that it is deeply concerned about the project, the High Commission stresses that it would deny claimants even the opportunity to present their case.
It would be a clear violation of the Refugee Convention, asserts the UN agency.
The most people fleeing war and persecution are simply unable to obtain the required passports and visas. There are no safe and "legal" available to them , also underlines the UNHCR.
To deny them access to asylum on this basis undermines the very objective for which the Convention on refugees has been established, insists the UN body.
