Somalian boy is refused asylum in Sweden and we get a bill for his keep

FURY erupted yesterday over a failed Somalian asylum seeker who was caught using another person’s passport at Heathrow as he tried to fly to Canada. The 17-year-old faced being booted out of Sweden but British taxpayers will now have to foot the bill to feed and clothe him in a Young Offenders’ Institution for three months.

For the past two-and-a-half years the Somalian-born youth was living in Sweden, but had his asylum application to stay there permanently refused.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faced being deported back to Somalia when he turned 18 later this year.

He claims he fled his country of birth after deserting from the army and had hoped to get to Canada to make a new asylum application.

But at the boarding gate inside Heathrow’s Terminal 2 on January 8, an Air Canada security worker who specialises in facial recognition spotted he was not travelling on his own passport and alerted police.

He pleaded guilty last month to possession of controlled identity documents with intent. Yesterday he was sentenced to six months inside a Young Offenders’ Institution when he appeared before Ealing Youth Court in west London.

The youth, who has been living in a council-run centre for unaccompanied child migrants in Hillingdon, will serve three months in detention and then three months on licence.

He may apply for asylum on his release. Critics last night said the case sums up Britain’s asylum madness with taxpayers once again picking up the tab.

John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “It’s encouraging that this person was caught whilst trying to use a fake passport, but taxpayers will be disappointed that they will have to pay to process this claim.

“Hopefully the deportation will be swift, smooth and there won’t be any expensive delays as happens so frequently.”

Tory MP Philip Davies said: “This young man should be kicked out of the country at the first opportunity. “That means days and hours – not months. “Clearly we have been identified as a soft touch.”

At the youth court, Roy Pershad, prosecuting, said the defendant had a passport “in someone else’s name” at the boarding gate but it was not clear whether it had been used to get into the UK. Ian Paul, in mitigation, told the court the youth had to join the government army because his father was “part of a rebel group” in Somalia.

He added: “After having served there for a brief while he left and travelled to Sweden two-and-a-half years ago.”

When magistrates asked the youth what he thought about a custody sentence, he said: “It will bring me more difficulties.”

THE UN Rules on refugees state all refugees must claim asylum in first safe land they enter. AFRICA is a giant continent and has lots of safe lands. therefore no African should get asylum in Europe.

It is being allowed to happen to create a mixed salve race to serve Zionist Elite who control the UK.
