Naive, White people! What happened to that Old British attitude?
The Human Rights Act, which is the UK version of the European Union’s Human Rights legislation, has turned Britain into a “safe haven” for terrorists, the official government reviewer of terrorism legislation has said.
“An individual may only be deported if their removal is compatible with this country’s international treaty obligations,” he continued.
“[European Convention on Human Rights] ECHR Article 3 prohibits the deportation, removal or extradition of an individual if there are substantial grounds for believing that there is a real risk that they will be tortured or subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment on return,” his report said.
According to Lord Carlile, the Government has taken two approaches to dealing with this matter.
“In the majority of recent national security deportations they have negotiated framework deportation with assurances (DWA) arrangements, as they are called.”
These DWA agreements exist with Algeria, Jordan, Ethiopia, Libya and Lebanon, but due to the unstable nature of those nations and their inability to maintain First World standards, these DWAs are not accepted by the European Court of Human Rights.
