An ISIS-supporting illegal immigrant from Sudan has been granted the right to reside permanently in the United Kingdom after his lawyers succeeded in arguing that deportation to his homeland would endanger his human rights.
Link with ISIS
British judges have dismissed concerns raised by the Home Office about the threat posed by the Sudanese migrant who illegally broke into the country in 2005 and again in 2018 after being stripped of his British passport. According to security authorities, the migrant had actively spread propaganda for The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and was granted British citizenship and lifelong anonymity.
The lawyers of the Sudanese national, who is allowed to be referred to as S3 successfully convinced the judges that the deportation back to his country would be tantamount to threatening his right to live. He pleaded that upon reaching Sudan he would be imprisoned and tortured. This argument of his swayed the justice even though S3 has traveled back to his home country on multiple occasions without facing persecution.
Concern by the British Security Service
The MI5 security services claimed that during one of his trips back to Sudan, a four-month stay from December 2016, the illegal migrant became active in spreading ISIS propaganda on social media, considering this, the British security services have argued that this national could pose a grave threat for the country.
In addition, the court documents seen by the MoS, the MI stated that the Sudanese national had demonstrated a commitment to the extremist ideology of ISIS and that there was a realistic possibility that he would seek to radicalize other individuals and encourage them to engage in Islamist extremist activities.
The legal team for the illegal migrant cited the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) in their arguments against his deportation. Despite leaving the European Union, the UK is still bound by the ECHR and its Strasbourg-based court, as it is technically a separate institution from the EU and was not affected by Brexit.
Condemnation of the Court Order
Due to the ruling court verdict, the suspected Islamist will be free to remain in the country for as long as he wishes and those who live around him will have no idea or knowledge that they are living near a terrorist (potential terrorist). Condemning this decision, the former Conservative party leader. Duncan Smith said, “This is ridiculous, Judges ought to understand when the security services make it clear that someone poses danger to the British public, he has forfeited his human rights concerning staying in the UK.”
The Chairman of the Migration Watch UK Think Tank, Alp Mehmet added: “Either our immigration judges are gullible or they derive pleasure from siding with chancers, crooks, and terrorists and putting their interests before those of the British public. If terrorists are to roam freely among us, we have a right to know who they are and what harm they could potentially do.”
Weak Links in British Immigration
British judges have a long and sordid history of blocking deportations of foreign criminals and terrorists. In one controversial example, UK judges stopped a deportation flight of many Jamaican criminals, including a convicted killer and a rapist was blocked by British judges as they were briefly refused access to mobile phones during detention. For another example, a deportation flight carrying mostly Jamaican criminals and one convicted killer was stopped in 2020 by British judges because the migrants were denied access to mobile phones while they were being detained.
Later in 2020, a judge in Scotland decreed that a Taliban terrorist should not be deported to Afghanistan as he suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from fighting the war against Western allies most probably British soldiers, and therefore must receive free healthcare in the UK as the same level of the country was not available in their home country.
