Justice Is Finally Dead!

The steady erosion of British Justice by Brussels has in my view finally reached its limit. A report out today has highlighted the fact that our judges will not extradite a killer back to his own country to face a prison sentence passed to him there. This criminal has been in trouble with the police several crimes in the U.K. and has lived off benefits since his arrival, but still our courts refuse to send him back.

The man in question is Branko Loncar aged 55, an ethnic Serb from Croatia, who with his two sons, received asylum in the U.K. in 1999.

The Killer Who Escaped Justice

While he lived in Croatia he and his wife had an argument after which she went out of the house, stood on a ladder, took a rope and indicated she intended to kill herself. As she stepped off the ladder, the noose tightened around her neck and rendered her unconscious, at which point Loncar shot her fourteen times with a handgun from a distance of 3-4 metres. At the time he said he was not aiming at her, but her body contained the bullets.

Initially the cause of death was determined to be by strangulation, but was accelerated by the injuries inflicted from the defendant’s gun and he was charged with murder. A pathologist declared she was already dead when the shots were fired and he was cleared of murder at his trial.

In 1999 he fled to England and claimed asylum because he was discriminated against in Croatia for being a Serb, and also suffered abuse in his village because of his wife’s death. Always ready to hear a good sob story, the British officials allowed him to stay. He has since lived in Britain on benefits and has been in trouble with the police on more than one occasion.

In 2000 the Croatian Courts reopened his case and four doctors said Mrs Loncar was still alive when her husband shot her. He was given a four-year prison sentence in his absence on the grounds that he ‘had an intention to kill’. By that time of course he was in England so the authorities sent an extradition request to the British Government in 2006 and the police arrested him.

This initial  request was turned down by the British Courts under Article 8 of the infamous Human Rights Act i.e. the ‘Right to Family Life’ because of his two sons. Judges also said Loncar had been in a relationship with the same partner since prior to 2006, although they do not live together’. In fact he and his ‘partner’ live separate lives 100 miles apart so I fail to see how this has any bearing on the case.

But now it is over because last week the High Court ruled in Loncar’s favour. Judges Lord Justice Aiken and Mrs Justice Popplewell, ended the long legal battle saying: “The offence for which the extradition of Mr Loncar is sought is undoubtedly a very serious one. Moreover, Mr Loncar has not led a blameless life as a British citizen. He has a caution for theft in 2012 and a conviction for common assault in 2013. Nevertheless we have reached the firm conclusion that it would be oppressive to extradite Mr Loncar by reason of the passage of time.”

So it would seem that as a killer, all you have to do is claim asylum in Britain and you will never have to answer for the crime of murder. This entire episode has proven once again the the idea of proper justice is totally dead and buried in Britain today.

It makes me wonder what excuse they would have found if Adolph Hitler had been on trial today for his war crimes! More than likely they would have given him ‘Community Service’!
