Britain mulls moving out foreign criminals

United Kingdom,Immigration/Law/Rights, Mon, 09 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 9 (IANS) Foreign criminals, using human rights laws to stay in Britain, are likely to be booted out under new measures being taken by the government, a top official has said.


British Home Secretary Theresa May wants judges to ignore pleas that their "right to a family life" means they should not be deported, the Sun reported.


May says she will toughen up the rules this summer, meaning more will be booted out of Britain in future.


But the home secretary's move is expected to spark a fresh row with Justice Secretary Ken Clarke, who has defended the use of the European Convention on Human Rights by illegal immigrants.


The convention says judges must take account of illegal immigrants' "domestic arrangements".


May, however, wants them to use a "qualification" which allows courts to ignore it. She said: "I have every confidence that will work.


"If it doesn't and we find there's a problem, we'll obviously look at other measures."
