UK Transfers Migrants to Rwanda, Facing Safety and Health Concerns

A group of migrants from a UK territory in the Indian Ocean has been relocated to Rwanda by the British government for over a year now.

They describe feeling isolated and unsafe in what one calls an “open prison.” Political parties are divided over the controversial plan, prompting the BBC to visit Rwanda and speak with four migrants already there about their experiences.

These migrants, suffering from complex medical needs and mental health issues, claim their needs are not being met in Rwanda.

Despite receiving financial support, they are not permitted to work and face harassment and unwanted advances.

Legal status complications further add to their challenges, leaving them in a state of uncertainty.

The situation highlights the complex issues surrounding migration and refugee policies.
