UK Proceeds With Deportation Flight to Jamaica Despite Court Ruling

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica – The United Kingdom’s Home Office today proceeded with the deportation of several Jamaicans, despite yesterday’s ruling from the Court of Appeal which briefly halted the charter flight.The UK’s Court of Appeal ruling, which came yesterday, was on the basis that the persons originally scheduled to be deported did not have access to proper legal advice.But in a last-minute turn of events, the charter flight left the UK for Jamaica this morning, with fewer than half of the 50-odd deportees on board.British politician, Chancellor Sajid Javid said that the 17 deportees on this morning’s flight were not British nationals, but foreign criminals that have committed serious offences.“They are not British, they are not members of the Windrush generation and they are all guilty of serious crimes, receiving custodial sentences of at least 12 months.”He said they were guilty of offences such as manslaughter, rape and dealing class A drugs.A spokesperson from the UK’s Home Office also issued a statement on the deportation flight, 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 e deported and we are therefore proceeding with the flight.”The Home Office also added that the court did not order that those taken off the flight cannot be deported at a later date, even though they should now have access to legal aid.The Government of Jamaican has not yet commented on the flight that should land in Kingston later today.Since the Windrush scandal broke in 2018, this is the second deportation flight to be scheduled from the UK to Jamaica. Last year, 29 convicted criminals were deported to Jamaica.last_img read more

But since 2008, he has also served as a part-time reserve police officer in the city of Colfax.Adams’ unit is routinely appointed to defend clients in Jasper County even as he occasionally patrols one of its cities as an officer.The potential conflict has gone largely unnoticed, but it became an issue this month in a murder case involving a man who was investigated by Colfax police and is being represented by Adams’ unit. Adams says he has no direct involvement on either side of the case.Still, multiple defense attorneys say they were stunned to learn of Adams’ dual roles.last_img read more
