Foreign prisoners to be stopped from exploiting human rights laws to dodge deportation

FOREIGN lags are to be stopped from exploiting human rights laws to dodge deportation.

Terror plotters, drug dealers and rapists will be among those prevented from gaming the system.

Dominic Raab’s British Bill of Rights would stop them citing a right to family life to remain in Britain by overriding chunks of the Human Rights Act.

It will also derail bids by prisoners to get out of jail earlier using the legislation by toughening up parole decisions.

The Deputy PM’s plan, which bolsters existing legislation, would also give jury trial and freedom of speech tougher protections in law.

Justice Secretary Mr Raab wants to stop a drift towards privacy laws through the back door.

Critics have accused courts of overreaching the interpretation of the right to family life set out in the Human Rights Act.

The plans will also enshrine the Supreme Court as Britain’s highest court, meaning UK lawyers can be confident they can enforce rules without fear of being made to consider rulings from

the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

Mr Raab said: “Our plans for a Bill of Rights will strengthen typically British rights like freedom of speech and trial by jury, while preventing abuses of the system and adding a healthy dose of common sense.”
