UK IMMIGRATION FAILS AGAIN AS IT LETS IN CONVICTED RAPIST – With the crisis at the UK Borders Agency, which has now been disbanded by the Home Secretary, for being totally ineffective at controlling the influx of criminals from EU member states, this story will come as little surprise or shock to anyone.
Campaign groups are now asking why a convicted rapist, Gintas Burinskas, 36, from Lithuania, was allowed into the UK.
Burinskas had previously been convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison for attacking and raping a woman and yet astonishingly was permitted to enter the UK.
Within just one month of arriving in the UK Burinskas attacked a woman in Northampton violently assaulting her.
During the trial prosecutors detailed that just 3 months after his release from a Lithuanian prison, after serving 10 years, was allowed to slip through the immigration net and attack again, this time on British soil.
The prosecution went on to detail how Burinskas attacked the woman, strangled her until she lost consciousness and then dragged her into a wooded area and violently raped her.
As with most foreign criminals it is likely that Burinskas will be freed within 3 years and be allowed again his liberty on our streets putting women at serious risk.
Remarkably the Judge Rupert Mayo sentenced Burinskas to just 7 years, giving him 5 years off for pleading guilty to the crime. Politicians are intending to appeal to the Attorney General in order to have his sentence increased. It is likely that Burinskas will serve just half of his sentence before being released and then (hopefully) deported.
Charity groups and politicians are demanding to know how Burinskas could have ever been allowed to enter the UK given his previous conviction.
Unfortunately, as many will acknowledge, the questions being asked are plain and obvious for all too see; but few have the will to do anything about them.
The Home Secretary, Theresa May, has already announced that she wants to scrap the Human Rights Act 1998 and pull out of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) that would allow the UK to easily stop these types of people entering and allow those responsible for crime and terrorist acts in the UK to be deported.
It is clear that while our lax liberal and labourite laws are allowed to remain not only will the UK be flooded with unwanted economic refugees from Eastern European countries it will also be inundated with the crime that comes with it.
