Migrant flights to Rwanda delayed due to legal challenges.

According to the Telegraph, one-way flights to take illegal channel migrants to Rwanda may not happen for months after the government admitted to a delay due to legal challenges.

Originally, the PM wanted the Rwanda flights to start by the end of May, but due to legal challenges by different groups, the government’s Rwanda plan is on hold.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said that the legal action has to be taken into account, which will most likely cause flights to be pushed back.

The Spokes person said: “I am simply saying that those legal challenges may be a factor which can mean it takes longer to implement the policy”. 

“We have received pre-action correspondence from a number of legal firms, I can’t get into that more… but we still maintain our hope to have the first flights take place in a matter of months.”
