Rwanda asylum scheme: Ministers warned over rights record before UK flight

UK ministers who backed sending asylum seekers to Rwanda were warned by their own adviser that its government tortures and kills political opponents.

The warning came weeks before the British government tried to send asylum seekers to the African nation.

The adviser raised concerns about the tone and accuracy of an official note on Rwanda's human rights record.

There is an ongoing legal challenge against government attempts to keep more of the comments secret.

Migrants, identified for the aborted flight, and three media organisations - BBC News, the Times and the Guardian newspapers - are seeking disclosure of the material.

The UN was sending Libyan refugees there two years ago.

Rwanda is accomodating something like 127,000 asylum seekers in refugee camps already.  It sounds like it's somewhat of a CoE for processing.

The assertion of refoulement should be easy to demonstrate, with so many asylum claims being processed in Rwanda it shoulld be straight forward to find example of persecution in Rwanda.

This feels like a problem related to survivor bias or the hot dog stand location problem.
