Rwanda: Truss says plan ‘completely moral’ ahead of new legal challenges

The Independent says the foreign secretary has insisted the government’s policy to fly asylum seekers to Rwanda is “completely moral” after the Church of England’s senior bishops condemned the plan.

Liz Truss told reporters this morning that “our policy is completely legal, it’s completely moral”. The Church of England had said the plan “should shame us as a nation”.

The comments came after a last-ditch legal effort to block the first flight to Rwanda was rejected yesterday by the Court of Appeal.

Judges upheld a high court ruling last week which found that the removals could go ahead.

The border force workers union PCS, and two charities — Care4Calais and Detention Action — had appealed the decision.
