Mail Online Headline: ‘80 foreign murderers welcomed to Britain: Albanian killers allowed to stay despite being on Interpol ‘wanted’ list’.
The headline says it all. UK has become a favorite destination of asylum seekers who are documented murderers from their own countries.
Most of the convicted murderers are from Albania and have been issued British Passports despite their being listed in the ‘wanted’ list of the Interpol. Mail Online reports: ‘Most slipped across the channel from Calais to Dover hidden in the back of Lorries on ferries. They used bogus names and false papers to claim asylum, often pretending to be from war-torn Balkan republic of Kosovo’.
‘The scandal came to light when Albania’s chief of police complained that 100 criminals from his country have been granted British citizenship and now live here.
‘The police chief said the criminals have been allowed to stay even though the Albanian government has informed the Home Office of the true identities of the men and their crimes, which also include rape and robbery’
‘Many of these criminals have been living in UK for up to ten years and have started new families here’. And most of the wanted criminals were able to enter UK using fake passports and travel documents.
Imer Hoxha, a convicted murderer from Albania was able to enter the UK using fictitious name and travel documents. Using a fictitious name, he was able to claim asylum in Britain as a victim of Balkan war. The false identity allowed him to move freely in UK
Another criminal wanted in Albania is Pjeter Lekstakaj whose known address is in Birmingham, fled to UK and demanded asylum claiming that he was a Kosovo refugee who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after witnessing the killing of his brother by Serbian soldiers, although he was convicted for gunrunning. His asylum application was given due course by the court in UK saying that the he has ‘compelling’ reason to stay despite of the extradition request by the Albanian government.
These are typical examples of cases where foreigners who have been convicted of criminal cases are able to enter and remain in UK under its ‘chaotic’ asylum system.
The British government is dealing with the situation by introducing a dedicated police force to secure its boarders.
