Church leaders label UK government plan as “shameful”
Church leaders have warned the UK government’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda ‘shames’ Britain – as the first flight’s scheduled to leave later.
Only a handful remain booked on the plane though – with more individual appeals likely.
Peter Nyuon ended up in a UN camp in Rwanda after fleeing war in South Sudan.
But rather than staying there, he’s heading for a new home in Finland:
“It is our last hope that we should be in a free world one day, if I would be prepared to stay in Rwanda, I better go back to Libya.”
