Rwandan lawmaker criticizes agreement with UK

Rwandan lawmaker criticizes agreement with UK

Kigali, Apr 27 (Prensa Latina) The agreement between Rwanda and the United Kingdom for the return of asylum seekers from the African country was subjected today to a storm of criticism by the opposition MP Frank Habineza, of the Green Democratic Party.

The provisions of the agreement allow London to return to Rwanda asylum seekers who, according to the European country’s rules, do not qualify for that category.

The legislator, who described the pact as of questionable legality, said he was ” opposed to this type of agreement being with Denmark, Israel or any other country (…) It is inhuman and contrary to human rights”.

Weeks ago, the British and Rwandan governments signed an economic partnership and economic development agreement allowing the former to return people seeking asylum on its territory.

He added that “conflicts are inevitable” as “this long-term influx of people can destabilize Rwandan society and create budgetary difficulties.
