Rwanda Government Says UK Migrant Deal Did Not Stipulate Return Of Funds

The Rwandan government said Tuesday that its controversial migrant deal with the UK did not stipulate the return of funds, following the decision by Britain's new government to scrap the scheme. British Prime Minister Keir Starmer announced on Saturday that the plan forged by the ousted Conservative government to deport asylum seekers to the East African country was "dead and buried". London has already paid Kigali £240 million ($307 million) since ex-PM Boris Johnson first announced the scheme in April 2022, despite a slew of legal challenges over the plan in the UK that had prevented it from ever getting up and running. "The agreement we signed did not stipulate that we should return the money," Rwanda's deputy government spokesperson Alain Mukuralinda told state television on Tuesday. "...
