The Jamaican Murderer Britain Can’t Deport Because He Claims to Be Gay

Alice Philipson, Telegraph (London), April 17, 2014

An illegal immigrant who stabbed a 15-year-old boy to death less than a year after arriving in Britain cannot be deported because he claims to be gay, a court has ruled.

The 29-year-old Jamaican was given a life sentence aged 16 when he and another schoolboy killed Abdul Maye following an argument over a £10 debt outside his school in east London.

A judge at the Old Bailey ordered he be deported once he had served a minimum of eight years.

Judge Paul Focke told the man, who cannot be named for legal reasons: “You are a Jamaican national and within months of coming to this country you committed murder.

“I am of the view that your continued presence in this country will be detrimental to its citizens.”

But yesterday the Court of Appeal ruled that he could not return to Jamaica because he risked degrading treatment for being homosexual that would breach his human rights, the Daily Mail reported.

Lord Justice Kay cited Article Three in the Human Rights Act, which protects against inhuman or degrading treatment.

Douglas Carswell, Tory MP for Clacton, said: “Most people would think this is outrageous. It’s a gross distortion of the concept of justice.

Until we have freed ourselves from the European Convention on Human Rights, these sorts of basket-case decisions will carry on happening thick and fast.”

The murderer stabbed his victim, who fled to Britain from the civil war in Somalia in 1995, less than 12 months after arriving in the UK in December 2000 on a temporary visa to visit his mother.

He and another 14-year-old boy were jailed for life in September 2002 and told to serve a minimum of eight years and two months. But this was reduced on appeal to six years and two months.

In 2009, the Secretary of State ordered his deportation but after one failed appeal, the Jamaican launched a second appeal in April 1012, arguing for the first time that he was gay.

The Jamaican successfully appealed Mrs May’s decision another two times before Lord Justice Kay yesterday said he believed the evidence of the man’s mother, who said that she “knew all along” that her son was gay.

At the Court of Appeal, Catherine Rowlands, for Mrs May, argued that ‘the claim of homosexuality was contrived and brought as a last resort to avoid deportation.

Mrs May accepted that, if he was genuinely gay, the man could not be deported.

    Wants to be around racist white imperialists than endure anti-gay persecution among his own people.

    I read about a black illegal immigrant in UK who is married to a white UK woman, and also gave birth to a mulatto child, and later on killed a very well educated UK woman but claimed that he cannot be deported because it will be bad for his wife and kid, and the UK court agreed and decided not to deport him

    • Alexandra1973

      Should have deported the entire family.

  • willbest

    Seems like a sensible law would be to just execute non-citizens found guilty of murder 3 hours after the sentence comes down.

    • Who Me?

      Or hang them at sunrise the next morning.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    All six and a half billion third-worlders should be able to squat in Western countries because none of them are safe when no White people are around! That is some pathetic logic. Even if they are murderers, the “logic” is that the alleged safety of a foreigner killer back home takes precedent over the safety of all British citizens. I have even heard an activist say that the entire world has a right to live in the West, even stating that all seven billion could live in a city the size of Germany or Texas. Yes, a continuous third-world landscape stretching across Europe and/or the US for a thousand miles in every direction. The progressives are doing everything they can to make your grandchildrens lives a dirty, dangerous and hopeless existence. The upside here is that more Brits will realize with a story such as this that the EU needs to scurry back over the channel.

    • Who Me?

      “Yes, a continuous third-world landscape stretching across Europe and/or the US for a thousand miles in every direction.”

      OMG! What a nightmare to even THINK of! *Somebody* REALLY hates us.

    This is gross stupidity. There are no absolute rights to anything. Limited rights in a limited world. Your rights end when they undermine human flourishing and diminish quality of life. Send this non-white foreigner home! His presence in Britain is a violation of the white man’s right to a national identity.

  • Steven Barr

    West Indians are known for their less than hospitable attitude towards those they deem “batty boys”. It’s an inconvenient fact for white liberals to stomach so they blame us for it. I read an article once in a left leaning newspaper which theorised that Britain was to blame for Jamaican anti gay attitudes because we used to sodomise them as punishment on our plantations!

  • David Ashton

    How do you prove or disprove that he is “genuinely” gay? He looks pretty miserable in the photo. Oh, you mean just “pretty” not cheerful. In any case putting anyone behind bars deprives them of the right to a family life as currently defined, so why not abolish prison and deportation altogether. In any case Jamaica doesn’t want its “offenders” back. Those whom the gods destroy they first make mad.

    • r j p

      Make him prove he is gay (receive sodomy) if that is his defense.

  • Sloppo

    “The murderer stabbed his victim, who fled to Britain from the civil war in Somalia in 1995”

    Wait a minute. Something about this doesn’t sound right. Somalia should be one of the best places in the world to live. It already enjoys almost 100% diversity, which is the lofty goal we of western civilization are always told to strive for. How could a diverse person voluntarily leave a diverse paradise like Somalia and then move to a place full of evil and oppressive white people? This story just can’t be true.

  • Luca

    Life in prison? if he really is gay, how is that a punishment? That’s like sending him to Sexual Disneyland.

    • IstvanIN

      Probably not, but who cares, he is Jamaican, black and a murderer, not our problem.

  • IstvanIN

    A murderer can’t be deported because he will lose his family life. He can’t be deported because he is gay. All these officials seem to forget the one overriding descriptor: murderer. That should trump everything else.

  • Jamaicans love that crazy, down and dirty sex, mon. What you be talkin bout Mr. Judge?
    This vile, murdering Negro wants to have his cake and eat it too. Serve his eight years for murder (!) and then get to stay in Britain to sponge off white taxpayers. If he were smart, he might prefer Jamaica, where he could hustle homo white tourists for big bucks.

  • MBlanc46

    It sure sounds as if something called the Human Rights Act needs to be repealed pronto.

  • Who Me?

    What kind of math gets 6 years, 2 months out of a life sentence for murder? Furthermore, as soon as this murderous thug got to Britain, he killed a 15 year old. He will be killed if sent back to his homeland, because he’s gay (he says). So instead, he will be turned loose on the unsuspecting British public in a few years, undoubtedly to kill again. Why not just dispose of the entire problem in a permanent manner?

    • Adolf Verloc

      Many European sentences for murder are ridiculously low by our standards. I have German in-laws, and they know a man who murdered his wife and got and served ten years. Some people were surprised he served the whole term.

      • That’s right – the “justice” system here is a farce.

        There was a TV show on a while ago where they were catching people for traffic violations. They were filming somewhere down in the south of England and also up in north Yorkshire.

        Out of all the people being caught for no insurance, no license, driving whilst already banned, false number plates, around 8 out of 10 were either black or Pakistani. Blacks in the south, Pakistanis in the North.

        One of the Pakistani ones tried to speed off (and set a car-chase going), where at one point he tries to throw a plastic bag out of the car window into a river, but it just misses going over the railings.

        The police finally catch up with him (after much dangerous driving that may have killed somebody)…..where he had no license, no insurance, and £30,000 worth of cocaine in the bag he dried to ditch.

        What did he get for all these offences and peddling drugs of that value?

        He got about 4.5 years! Which in Britain is usually then automatically halved – so if he behaves himself he will be back on the streets in about 2.5 years to do the same!

        Murderers and rapists are in and out of prison like a fiddler’s elbow. 8 years here, 10 years there, out on release, out on probation, or just out altogether, in much less time than that officially given.

        Now then, Ronnie Biggs – the “Great Train Robber” from the 1960’s – was sentenced to 30 years imprisonment with no early release. He did not kill anybody. He fled prison and lived on the run abroad for decades, but returned when he was old and sick.

        People today, particularly foreigners, are doing much, much worse and not even seeing the inside of a prison cell.

        Liberals and the establishment have made it pretty much the view that crime is some kind of illness that has to be treated, whether it be psychological or government/societal policies that “led them to it” or whatever.

        Myself, although I have no proof or any real insight, suspect that one hell of a lot of money is being made by having these “revolving doors” of criminals and in particular foreign criminal cases.

        Court fees, wages for themselves, lawyers, barristers, translators, human rights people, contracts with Serco and Group Four to look after the criminals for their term, then get to do it all over again…… and again….and again….

        Might be my paranoia though!.

      • benvad

        Well if I ever decide to kill someone, I’ll make sure I do it in Europe.

    • r j p

      He isn’t gay. Lawyer just figured out a defense.

  • benvad

    He killed a Somali? Well then let’s not be too harsh, he was removing an even more harmful alien parasite from British society.

  • T_Losan

    Bottom line, he has a life sentence. At least that.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    Your average Liberal would have no trouble keeping a straight face using that defense. Whatever works. Ends justify the means.
