The Home Office came under fire yesterday when it emerged an illegal immigrant brutally raped a young woman – three years after a judge ordered him to be deported.
Abdikarim Abbas Abdisamad, 33, originally from Somalia, befriended a 24-year-old woman in a nightclub claiming he had just lost his job and was penniless.
The victim took pity on Abdisamad and invited him to her home where he raped her twice and battered her so severely she suffered 17 separate injuries.
He was jailed for ten years after being convicted of rape at Coventry Crown Court on Monday.
But during the hearing, it emerged Abdisamad was already a convicted criminal and a judge had ordered his deportation in 2009 when he was jailed for six months for grievous bodily harm.
But he was allowed to remain in Britain because of his immigration status and civil war in his home country of Somalia.
Now bungling Home Office officials are working to finally deport him.
Alp Mehmet, vice-chairman of Migration Watch, said: ‘Anyone who doesn’t have the right to be here who has been told to get out should leave and leave quickly.
