PROOF THAT STATE SOVEREIGNTY IN THE MODERN AGE IS A SHAM
So what this means is OPEN BORDERS! “All aboard to whatever state you want to go to illegal migrants, you won’t be returned to point of origin.” KGS
UPDATE: Finnish Minister of immigration Astrid Thors says Finland should stop sending illegals back to Greece in light of ECHR ruling. See how sovereign we are?
UK can’t deport asylum seekers back to Greece as they will be subjected to ‘inhumane or degrading treatment’
By STEVE DOUGHTY
Britain was stripped of the power to deport hundreds of asylum seekers yesterday in a far-reaching ruling by European human rights judges.
The judgment condemned the treatment of refugees by Greece and effectively forbade countries from returning asylum seekers there as they are subjected to ‘inhumane or degrading treatment’.
It means that for the first time human rights rules stop Britain from sending deportees to a fellow European Union country.
Greece is visited by nearly two million British tourists each year – and also enjoys the power under EU law to demand extradition of British citizens it suspects of crime within its borders.
An immigration watchdog warned the ruling is likely to mean thousands of asylum seekers will make their way to Britain from Greece, or will say they have come from Greece, because authorities will have no power to return them.
The judgment, by the European Court of Human Rights, will also act as a fresh constraint on Britain’s right to remove individuals considered undesirable.
