As another year draws to a close, we want to reflect on some highlights. But first we want to thank our clients for trusting us in such difficult times & the brilliant barristers, interpreters, NGOs, experts & court staff we work with each day. We wish you a very happy New Year🎊
Here are our highlights!👇🏾

1. We obtained a Rule 39 ‘interim measure’ from the ECHR which had the effect of grounding the first flight to Rwanda. This battle continues for our clients facing removal to Rwanda. There will, no doubt, be more to follow in 2023.
2. We acted for @pcs_union & @Care4Calais in challenging the Gov’t’s ‘Pushbacks’ policy - a plan to stop migrant boats in UK waters & forcibly redirect them to France. A week before the hearing, the Gov’t withdrew the policy and paid our costs.

Debating this week’s motion on @SuellaBraverman, Shadow HS @YvetteCooperMP points out “there is also a serious question about whether the Home Secretary has just made things worse by ignoring legal advice and allowing dangerous overcrowding” at the #Manston immigration camp 1/6
.@CommonsHomeAffs chair @DianaJohnsonMP asks how #Manston size hit 4,000 “in a facility that was only designed for 1,600” – @YvetteCooperMP points out @SuellaBraverman was warned of a “very high risk of successful legal challenge because of the Home Office breaking the law” 2/6
SNP Home spox @Stuart_McDonald tells MPs he “noticed a significant deterioration” in conditions at #Manston – “not because of the hard work of the staff there but because of the overcrowding” – adding that staff “have been placed in an impossible position” by @SuellaBraverman 3/6

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)
