After Brexit, London wants to prevent the European Court of Human Rights from “giving it orders”

British Justice Minister Dominic Raab said Sunday “not normal” for judges in Strasbourg to rule on issues relating to British soldiers fighting abroad, or to the public health service.

London wants to distance itself further from the continent. British Justice Minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday (October 17th) that he wanted to prevent the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) from “give him orders”. UK law currently states that judges must take decisions of the ECHR into account. A situation that the British government intends to change.

“I don’t think it’s the job of the European Court in Strasbourg to give us orders on things like the NHS [service public de santé], our social protection or our police forces “, said dyears an interview with Sunday Telegraph the minister, who had ardently defended Brexit. These public services should be governed by “elected parliamentarians” rather than by one “judicial legislation”, according to him.

Unveiling his plans for reform of the law, which should be presented to MPs in the spring, Dominic Raab explained that he was considering a “mechanism” allowing the government to introduce legislation to “to correct” court judgments that ministers judge “incorrect”. “We want the Supreme Court to have the final say on the interpretation of the country’s laws, not the Strasbourg Court”, he continued. “As [maintenant que nous avons] left the EU, we do not want the Luxembourg Court to prevail over our judges “, he said in reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union [CJUE].

The reform of human rights law also aims to prevent offenders of foreign nationality from relying on this law to avoid their deportation. The minister called “serious problem” the fact that foreign criminals use the so-called “right to family life” clause of human rights law to prevent their deportation.
