Deportation of foreign criminals goes ahead as Government bats off Court ruling

A Home Office flight deporting convicted foreign national offenders to Jamaica has left the UK, despite a last-minute legal challenge and the ruling of that saying the flight should not take off.

HM Government kept things under wraps with the media and the public not yet knowing how many criminals were on board the plane of where it took off from.

The court order on Monday stopped the government deporting some of those due to leave, amid concerns they may not have had access to legal advice.

Chancellor Sajid Javid batted off the Courts ruling and said no British nationals or anyone protected by the ruling were on the flight, all of the people being deported have all served prison sentences of 12 months of more.

Mr Javid told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It is absolutely right that when they have served their sentence that we send them out of the country,

“They are not British nationals, they are not members of the Windrush generation, they are all foreign national offenders.”

The flight had been due to leave for Kingston at 6:30 GMT on Tuesday 11th of January 2019.

The Home Office realised a statement saying: “We make no apology for trying to protect the public from serious, violent and persistent foreign national offenders.

“The court ruling does not apply to all of the foreign national offenders due to be deported and we have therefore proceeded with the flight.”

The Court of Appeal ruled the government should not deport detainees from Colnbrooke and Harmondsworth detention centres, near Heathrow, after lawyers argued mobile phone signal problems meant some of the detainees could not get legal advice.

The original number of due to be deported on the flight was about 50, but the number of people on the plane as it took off is not yet clear. Mr Javid told Sky News: “I don’t know the exact number but I think it is around 20 – or above 20.”

Members of the opposition had been calling for the government to suspend the flight until a report on the Windrush scandal has been published.

Labour’s shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said deporting the detainees was “unfair”, claiming: “Many of the proposed deportees came here as children and have no memory of Jamaica.”

However, the Home Secretary Priti Patel said many of the offenders on board were guilty of “serious offences”, including rape, manslaughter and dealing class A drugs.
