No going home

Social Share

Illegal immigrant Rohan Cecil William Winfield was listed to be deported back to Barbados – after going to England 13 years ago on a student visa and overstaying his time.
And after being convicted of raping a woman and sentenced to three years in prison back in 2008.
But deportation attempts by Britain’s Home Secretary failed after Winfield appealed. Senior Immigration Judge Andrew Jordan ruled that Winfield, who was married and has four children – three from his wife and one from his mistress – should be allowed to remain in Britain because his removal would “violate his human rights and those of his family”, under Article 8 of the Human Rights Act.
According to reports in the British media, Judge Jordan in a written ruling said it “might at first glance appear to be wrong, if not perverse”, and that he could understand the sense of “disquiet” that could arise from his ruling, but insisted it was correct. (Daily Mail/Daily Telegraph/MB)
