When The Law Is An Ass!

Supposedly, the law is all about justice, but the sad fact is, these days it means very little and is often farcical. This is true of a monumental miscarriage of justice in Britain being discussed at the moment.

Ibrahim - Not Even Remorse

In 2003 a failed Iraqi immigrant ran over a 12 year-old girl on the streets of Blackburn, England, and ran off, leaving her dying, trapped under the wheels of his car. The immigrant, Aso Mohammed Ibrahim, had previously been caught three times driving while being banned and for having no insurance, and was awaiting deportation after a failed bid to remain in the UK.

After the accident, Ibrahim was charged with driving while banned and failing to stop after an accident. He served a four month jail sentence and was released. Unbelievably, he was never charged with manslaughter over the child’s death and got away ‘scot free’ for killing the girl.

Ibrahim had previously entered the country claiming asylum because, being an Iraqi Kurd, he was ‘persecuted’ by Saddam Hussein’s regime. He was due for deportation in December 2009, but after release from prison in 2003 he had met a British woman and got married, having two children with her.

British Justice - Not So Impartial Anymore

As a result of his family status, despite being convicted of a string of offences, including, drugs possession, criminal damage and theft, he will be allowed permanent residence in the UK because his lawyer argued he has a right to family life under Article 8 of the Human Rights Act. To me that is a crock of baloney!

The Bereaved Father Fighting For Justice

The father, Paul Housten, whose only child was mown down by Ibrahim and thereby has no family any more, has been trying for the past seven years to get justice for his daughter, but sadly, the law was not up to the task. Once again we see an immigrant playing the human rights card to his advantage.

I find it inconceivable that he was never brought to trial for the death of the young child, and the sad thing is, he has never shown remorse for the death he caused. All the law seemed interested in was that he had, once again, been driving without a licence and that he fled the scene of the accident. An innocent child died, but her death meant nothing to the legal profession. Anyone who was not an immigrant would have been charged with the young girls death and spent several years in prison.

Amy - The Innocent Victim

There is without doubt one law for native Brits and one for immigrants, and that is to say the least shameful! The laws in Britain are in urgent need of overhaul, because at the moment, they always favour the criminal at the expense of the victim. This has been demonstrated time and again during the last twenty years.

The government has promised a review of the human rights laws in Britain, but I fear as always, they will not go far enough. That terrorists and immigrants can use these laws to escape deportation or even prosecution for crimes committed is appalling. These laws have been usurped and twisted by dubious lawyers time and again in order to get their clients ‘off’, and the only people who can put a stop to it is the government. Are they up to the task? I doubt it!



Today the government has issued a statement to say there will be an appeal against the ruling by the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal in this case. PM Cameron has expressed his outrage at the ruling which he says has: “Left me with great anger”. The UK Border Agency will appeal the decision at the Upper Tribunal in the hope of getting a just decision.

Let us hope that eventually, justice will be served.
