European Court of Human Rights

Our article of June 29 reported that a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights had ‘blocked the deportation of some 200 Somali criminals’ from the UK. The 200 figure was based on a Home Office estimate that 2/3 of the 214 Somalis taking cases to the Court had a criminal background and that the remaining third included illegal immigrants, who are by definition criminals. There was also a minority of failed asylum seekers.
