No Right Turn: British government deports people to torture
This is of course unlawful. It violates the Refugee Convention (not to mention the Convention Against Torture), both of which are given effect in UK law. But the politically-driven rush to kick out asylum seekers (lest they disturb racist Britons by being different) means that unfair decisions are made, and people are sent back to persecution and torture. As for the decision-makers, well, its not as if anyone is holding them to account for what happens to the people they deport. Morally, they’re complicit in the crime.
