The Archbishop of Canterbury has criticized the UK plan to send refugees to Rwanda

Church of England President Justin Welby on Sunday criticized the British government’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda to wait for their process.

The announcement was made this week by human rights organizations and the UN.

Archbishop Welby of Canterbury, the oldest clergyman in the Church of England, joined the critics in his Easter message. The cleric said the proposal raises “serious and serious ethical questions.”

“Doctrine must bear God’s judgment, no,” Welby said.

The clergy said that a country like England, built on Christian values, “could not outsource its responsibilities even to well – intentioned countries like Rwanda.”

“It is against the nature of God,” he said.

When Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled the plan last week, he had already pointed out that his proposal could face legal challenges.

But the Home Office, which has been accused of pursuing the policy, has argued that the UK’s current system is “broken” in the face of unprecedented displacement pressures.

Rwanda will initially receive £ 120 million (7 157 million, € 144 million) to accommodate asylum seekers and migrants and provide them with a legal way of residence.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has called the plan a “grave violation of international law.”
