An Afghan migrant, who hacked of the head of a woman in the Netherlands, walked unchecked into Soft Touch Britain, where he brutally attacked two police officers with a claw hammer.
Jamshid Piruz’s lawyer tried to excuse his actions by insisting the “offence was committed at a time of stress for my client” as he “was in a foreign country” and was “very confused by the vehicles driving on a different side of the road.”
He had been sentenced to 12 years in jail for butchering a defenceless woman (pictured inset above) in Holland in 2006. The judge rejected his insanity plea, and court documents said he was “inspired by Taliban movies” and had acted “intentionally and with premeditation”.
However, no alarm was raised when he entered the UK and began claiming benefits, because Mr. Piruz was a permanent resident of the Netherlands and so could take advantage of European Union (EU) open borders.
Furthermore, under EU rules, other member states have no compulsion to inform the UK about convicts and dangerous persons who could enter the country. Some nations do not even keep such records.
When inside the UK, the unemployed 34-year-old began his crime spree within days by assaulting a member of staff at Gatwick Airport. Yet, he was back on the streets days later after being released by local magistrates.
He will be sentenced today, so British readers keep paying your taxes, because he’s about to get a whole lot more expensive to keep!
