My belief is now completely beggared!

December 7, 2006
I really cannot believe that a failed asylum seeker convicted of the rape of a 13 year old girl can be awarded compensation because he was kept in custody at the end of his prison sentence.

The Home Office were (quite rightly) trying to kick him out of the country, though why this should be difficult is a mystery to me. Grab him, stick his stuff in a bag and chuck him on a plane – dead easy.

The story doesn’t say how much of his eight year sentence this pond-life served, but I would guess it would be between five and six years, so the extra 20 months he served was no more than the sentence he should have served in the first place. Now, because some “human rights” lawyers have taken up his case, he stands to receive a payout of around £50,000.

I wonder how much compensation the victim of his knifepoint rape got? A couple of thousand at the most, if anything at all. What chance will she have of getting any more out of her attacker? None at all – the courts will say that he didn’t have the funds at the time of conviction so tough luck.

Wouldn’t it be nice if just once, for a change, the human rights lawyers made a stand for the rights of the victim, instead of the villain? We can live in hope, but of course we know there’s no money in that sort of battle, so the lawyers just aren’t interested.

    One can only hope that the family of the victim can find a lawyer not currently busy creaming money from this sort of case to represent them and take all the compensation away from this scum to in some small way recompense their daughter

    This really shows just how far this country has slipped into the sewer.
    More tax payers money in the pocket of a lowlife.

    This does’nt surprise me in the least. The amount of times I’ve had a foreign gentleman in Custody who decides that he cannot understand the questions being asked of him by the Custody Sgt…yet out on the street as soon as the words spill from my mouth, ‘You’re under arrest’ he pleads with me in very good English to let him go, offering a bribe etc.
    It makes me seeth!!
    They know their rights and refuse to co-operate until they have their named legal representative arrive in custody.
    A radical thought…..recruit a proper Immigration task force at a cost of millions to round up all the outstanding illegals, detain them, process them and ship ’em out of Blighty. Oh and don’t forget, the same Task force could actually patrol all the Ports 24/7 365 days a year to stop the buggers coming back!
    A vote winner for the Party with the guts to put this in their manifesto.

    Personally, I wouldn’t deport someone to Somalia if that had been my sister he raped at knifepoint. Also, it seems that certain Immigration officials have been less than honest about his case (possibly under oath) and he has been kept locked up for almost two years after he served his full prison term; Somalia isn’t so much a country as a warzone right now, so even if asylum seekers have their claims rejected they can’t be sent back, the government’s idea of a solution being to keep them in glorified prison camps. A perverse strategy if ever I heard one!
    Regardless of the nature of this man’s crimes, his treatment by the authorities must be governed by the laws of the land, or else Britain is just another banana republic. Whilst the compensation involved seems somewhat high, the judge was entirely right to highlight the fact that those laws have been broken.

    You are right that judges should highlight laws that are broken, but could you explain to me why I have to pay for the results of bad law being broken?

    Send scum like this back to Somalia even if it is a war zone. Chuck ’em out and leave them on the runway. I personaly wouldn’t mind if this nasty person was killed in his home country. I don’t see why we have to consider the rights of anyone who enters this country illegally and then commits serious crime like this. We’re mad to put up with this.

    The altenative is a couple of bricks on a dark night. And that’s what it will come to if good upright citizens feel the laws are letting them down. I wonder who would look after their human rights.

    I can totally believe this; this is what our country has come to. It makes you want to weep.

    i agree with inspector.
    i used to be proud to be British, but as i grow older and wiser i find myself being less proud. I now call myself english and say quietly that sometimes it okay. i look at the responses to the post regarding the somalian rapist being paid compensation and it breaks my heart to read comments made by sensible, educated people advocating vigilante justice. My anger is not at these people, or to JAMES who insists that this vile waste of space rapist should not be sent back to his country because of the ‘civil war’ raging there, but because of people like this somalian, and all the other people who are running this country to the ground. Im talking about the government, the law lords, the judges, solicitors, social workers and all those other people that ‘defend’ the rights of the criminal fraternity that ruin this once proud land.
