Innenriksminister Theresa May sier de konservative vil programfeste en oppsigelse av Human Rights Act foran valget i 2015.

Human Rights Act er forankringen av den Europeiske menneskerettskonvensjonen, EMK, i britisk lov. Den er bindende og har forrang foran britisk sedevanerett, slik den også har i Norge og alle andre som har ratifisert EMK.

Nye opplysninger viser at bare en brøkdel av alle kriminelle utlendinger som pågripes blir utvist. Deres advokater utnytter ankemulighetene i Human Rights Act, og behandlingen gir oppsettende virkning eller positivt utfall så de får bli.

Nå har justismyndighetene sett seg lei på situasjonen og opprettet en 100 mann spesialgruppe som skal lede Operasjon Nexus.

Men detaljer i bunnen av en artikkel får en til å lure på hva myndighetene driver med:

Under the Operation Nexus for the first time people arrested in London are having their fingerprints checked against border force records.

Where possible, checks are also taking place to see if a suspect has a criminal history in their homeland.

Hvis politiet for første gang skal sjekke fingeravtrykk mot grensekontroll, må man lure på hvor myndighetene har vært.

Da er de ikke-utviste kriminelle utlendingene bare toppen av et isjfell, og det isfjellet befinner seg inn i politikernes hoder.

Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, said «human rights laws need to change» after Scotland Yard released figures showing that just one in 100 foreigners arrested in London are removed from this country.

It comes amid growing police concern about the number of “foreign national offenders”. More than a quarter of people arrested in London, equivalent to 70,000 people, are from overseas, with about half of them from outside the European Union.

Mr Grayling told The Telegraph: «If anybody said to me I think we need to deport more foreign prisoners and foreign offenders, I would agree wholeheartedly.

«Very often attempts to deport [foreign prisoners] run into problems with the Human Rights Act, which is another reason why human rights laws need to change.

Last month Theresa May, the Home Secretary, said that wants to send a “very clear message” to judges who are ignoring Parliament and allowing foreign criminals to stay in Britain.

The government is introducing legislation which will mean that criminals are deported first and that their appeals are then heard abroad to end the “never-ending game of snakes and ladders” under the current immigration system.

However, the Conservatives are concerned that foreign criminals will remain in Britain unless European human rights laws are overhauled.

The Home Secretary told the Conservative Party conference that the party’s manifesto for the 2015 election will pledge to scrap the Human Rights Act.

The Tories are considering replacing it with a British bill of rights as part of their renegotiations with Brussels ahead of a referendum on Europe in 2017.
