Twenty nine year old Jermaine Rutherford is now the second Jamaican recently who has escaped being deported from the United Kingdom by claiming he is a homosexual.
He was convicted for murdering a 15 year old schoolboy.
According to a report by the Daily Mail he was due to be sent back to the Jamaica upon completing his prison sentence.
But while awaiting deportation – ten years after a judge said he should be kicked out – Rutherford belatedly declared he was gay, and would be in danger in ‘homophobic’ Jamaica.
A woman claiming to be Rutherford’s ex-girlfriend says he ‘is not gay’, and even told her while he was behind bars that he planned to avoid deportation by claiming to be homosexual.
Previously – Alvin Brissett,another Jamaican man who has a string of convictions for drug possession, assault and robbery, avoided deportation to Jamaica after claiming at the 11th hour – while in handcuffs at Gatwick airport – that he was homosexual.
