UK: Migrant Who Tried to Rape Woman Granted £27,000
According to the Sun, his victim would have only been granted £7,500 after her ordeal in 2012.
Kurdish citizen Bashdar Abdulla Qarani entered the UK in 2005, and was found guilty of a series of offences, including theft, battery, and carrying a knife in the following years.
He was then sentenced to four years in prison for a sexual offence, which qualified him for automatic deportation once released. He was freed in 2015, but taken to a deportation facility straight after.
Immigration authorities were, however, unable to prove his nationality due to Qarani’s lack of documents, and the 36-year-old was once again released last December.
This week, deputy High Court judge Philip Mott QC ruled Qarani’s lengthy detention was in breach of his human rights and granted the man £27,000 in compensation.
The case was described as “barmy” by Conservative MP Philip Hollobone, a vocal opponent of the Human Rights Act.
Rape charity Voice4Victims argued the case highlighted the “imbalance” between victim and offender rights.
Qarani will have to report to his local authority each week as part of his bail conditions.
Right-wing website Breitbart reported that this was not the first time Justice Mott had compensated foreign criminals.
In 2015, Mott offered repayment to crack dealer Paul ‘Ricky’ West, after the Home Office put him in detention from August 27, 2007 to January 14, 2010.
Authorities were unable to remove West from the country as they failed to ascertain whether he was a Jamaican or Ghanaian national.
At what point do the rights and safety of law abiding citizens trump those of a violent illegal migrant criminal?https://t.co/nIuZ42a9kS

“Had the [Home Secretary] acted with reasonable diligence and expedition, and made her own inquiries earlier, she would have realized that deportation could not have been effected within a reasonable period, and also realized that further detention was not reasonable in all the circumstances,” WalesOnline reported the judge as saying at the time.
In another case, Justice Mott ruled that a pedophile, who had entered Britain illegally from Sudan, could not be deported safely.
In the 2013 case, the judge found that Jumaa Kater Saleh would be persecuted if expatriated. Saleh was given compensation but this was overturned by the Court of Appeal.
