Afghan national Ahmad Otak was given asylum by this country. He showed his gratitude by murdering two young women in front of his former girlfriend.
Anyone reading some left wing publications uncritically might think immigrants are always and only a benefit to their new countries. Some, like the gullible (or mendacious) Sonia Gable, even argue for open borders. The recent Olympics and Paralympics saw tourists flocking to London from the four corners of the Earth, and parasites domestic and foreign to fleece them.
Fortunately, the police were on top of it, as the documentary Secrets of the Pickpocketsproved. One person who should have been kept out but wasn't, was Ahmad Otak. On Friday, November 9, the Afghan national was given the mandatory life sentence at Leeds Crown Court after pleading guilty to the murders of 17 year old Kimberley Frank and 18 year old Samantha Sykes.
He appears to have committed these two gruesome murders, stabbing and slashing both girls to death, out of perverted jealousy or rage. Then he abducted Elisa Frank, the sister of one of the victims, and drove to Dover hoping to flee the country and doubtless claim asylum somewhere else.
By the greatest of ironies, it was an illegal immigrant who saved the day for Miss Frank; after she alerted her to what was going on, Bahram Bahrami managed to disarm Otak and escape with the victim. Doubtless he will now be rewarded for his courageous act by being deported.
Last month, another so-called asylum seeker, one who should have been booted out twice before, was given a six year sentence for raping a 22 year old woman he had duped into thinking he was a taxi driver. Atiq Rehman had been refused leave to remain twice, but instead of being marched to the airport and put on a plane back to Pakistan, he was allowed to prey on a vulnerable woman. The circumstances of this rape were particularly harrowing. After he was arrested he claimed first that another man had committed it, then that the victim had consented before pleading guilty to two counts of rape, and then claiming again sex had been consensual. Earlier this year, football player Ched Evans was given a five year sentence for a rape which unlike this one did not contain "an element of abduction", as the judge said, and six years can certainly be considered a light sentence in comparison. He was ordered to be deported on his release, and hopefully he will be, in handcuffs.
