“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to state categorically that Ghana has not engaged with the UK on any such plan and does not intend to consider and such operation in the future,” a statement in Accra said.

In a statement to the press, the Ministry stated that it has come to its attention that UK newspapers in the morning of 18th January 2022 reported details of a document dubbed “Operation Dead Meat”, which contains, among others, a measure supposedly being drawn up by UK authorities to “send migrants to countries such as Rwanda and Ghana for processing and resettlement”.

It is recalled in this regard that the Ministry on the 8th of September, 2021 debunked in a tweet a news item on Sky News UK about a possible Ghana interest in a partnership agreement with the UK to host deported or returned migrants of Third Countries from the UK.

“The position of the Government has not changed and the Ministry advises that any publication that implies otherwise should be ignored,” the statement said.
