London is about to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The British newspaper The Sunday Telegraph published the plans of the UK government after completing all procedures for leaving the European Union.

In particular, the UK will no longer comply with the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights. It is expected that at the negotiations on March 2 in Brussels, the delegation of the United Kingdom will inform European partners about this.

The decision will enter into force at the end of the transition period in relations between the UK and the EU.

Foreign Minister Dominic Raab and Interior Minister Priti Patel have previously spoken for refusing to comply with the ECHR rules. The British do not like when European judges give prisoners the right to vote or prohibit the extradition of certain foreign criminals.

“We will respect human rights in our own way,” a source in the ruling Conservative Party said.

Until the end of 2020, the United Kingdom and the European Union are in a transition period in which London is required to comply with EU laws.
