Over 40 foreign terrorists used human rights laws to remain in UK
June 25, London : Over 40 foreign terrorists have managed to remain in the United Kingdom due to the existing human rights laws in the country.
According to reports, the UK government faces challenging problems in deporting jihadists, which lead to terrorist attacks inspired by IS terrorist group, outlawed in Russia. The report mentions some details of a doctrine called Deportation with Assurances (DWA), the media outlet said. This doctrine, accepted by the UK government, allows to expel terror suspects under the condition that they will not be mistreated or tortured in their countries of origin.
“My research suggests there are more than 40 foreign terrorists convicted in the UK who have avoided deportation using the human rights act. The figure is much larger than was previously thought," Professor Clive Walker, an international law expert and co-author of the report,” said by media outlet.
UK courts have successfully banned the expulsion of foreigners suspected of terror activities using this doctrine based on human rights, and thus allowing them to stay in the country.
