Jamaica’s reputation of being one of the most homophobic places on earth may help to prevent at least one man from being deported from the United Kingdom.
According to a report by the daily mail, the Jamaican migrant who murdered a British teenager less than a year after he arrived in Britain cannot be deported because he is gay, a top judge has ruled.
The 29-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been released from jail and is now free to roam the streets after Lord Justice Maurice Kay said that sending him back to Jamaica would violate his human rights as a homosexual.
The judge referred to Article Three in the Human Rights Act, which protects an individual from inhuman or degrading treatment.
The murderer, referred to only as JR, arrived in the UK in December 2000 when he was 15, and, with another person, was ‘party to the murder of another teenage boy’ less than a year later in 2001, the judge said.
He and his co-defendant were convicted of murder and sentenced to detention at Her Majesty’s pleasure in September 2002, before being freed from prison in June 2012. (Image source: bbc.co.uk)
Ever since he was released, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, has been battling to have him sent home.
To say many Britons are angry by the judge’s decision would be an understatement. Some online comments by Britons include:
“Put him on a plane and sod his rights…I’m sick of this murdering, thieving scum who come here to murder, steal and scrounge.”
“So he played the GAY card…. knowing they hate Gays in his home land.”
“So what about the human rights of the boy he killed, who will now never get a life? Why are the human rights of criminals so important, when they have taken away someone else’s?”
“What is this cr*p about can’t be named. He should be named and shamed, no hand outs of any kind and see how he gets on. Or take a chance back home SCUM.”
“Another bonkers ruling by UK courts. If this ‘convicted murderer’ manged to keep his homosexuality secret from everyone in the UK including his fellow prisoners for 12 years or so then he can easily do the same when he is back in Jamaica and I guess will have a strong incentive to do so.. SO SEND HIM BACK.”
