Prince Charles criticizes UK's Rwanda migrants policy calls it 'appalling'



 1. Prince Charles has privately described the British government's plans to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda as "appalling", two media reports said, as the first flight taking refugees to the East African country is due to leave next week.

Charles, heir to the British throne, has been heard criticising the policy, The Times and Daily Mail newspapers reported.

Charles is concerned that the controversial asylum policy will overshadow a Commonwealth meeting summit in Rwanda where he is due to represent his mother Queen Elizabeth at the end of this month, The Times reported.
2. The first flight to take migrants arriving illegally in Britain to Rwanda can go ahead next week, the High Court in London ruled, after a judge dismissed campaigners' attempts to win an injunction to stop it.

Charities and a trade union had launched a challenge against the government's plan to send asylum seekers to the East African nation, saying it was unsafe, but the court said next Tuesday's first planned flight could take place.

The first few dozen asylum seekers are due to be deported to Rwanda on June 14.
