Liverpool bomber used fake Jordanian passport to enter Britain: report

Liverpool bomber Emad Al Swealmeen is said to have entered the UK on a false Jordanian passport, leading to his asylum claim being rejected. Despite this, he was left free in the country to carry out the Remembrance Sunday bombing.

Documents leaked during Emad Al Swealmeen’s forensic interview in 2014 revealed that the potential terrorist had a history of lying in order to increase his chances of being granted asylum in Britain.

A 35-page dossier disclosed to Sun Sunday showed that Al Swealmeen apparently lied to immigration officials about his origin from war-torn Syria, saying he risked death if he returned. The Liverpool forward had in fact traveled from the United Arab Emirates, where he led a stable life with his family.

The leaked report also revealed that he was challenged by an immigration officer over the validity of the passport he used to enter the UK.

When asked if he had Jordanian nationality, Al Swealmeen replied simply: “No”.

“So you must have known that the Jordanian passport was illegal?” Asked the immigration officer, to which the future terrorist replied that he had “no other choice”.

“So you admit that you knowingly used the deception to get a visa to enter the UK?” The officer asked, with Al Swealmeen responding, “No, I had no knowledge.”

The immigration officer sent him a “credibility warning” to which Al Swealmeen claimed he had only two options, either “stay and die or use the passport and escape”.

“This is not strictly true. At the time of the visa application, you were not in Syria, you were in the United Arab Emirates. So it’s not a matter of “staying and dying” since you left Syria, “the officer pointed out.

“You lied and used deception to enter the UK. Why should I believe you are from Syria? He asked himself.

Al Swealmeen said: “I don’t know how to answer.”

Apparently supporting the veracity of the report, a spokesperson for the Home Office said: “The Home Office is urgently examining how these sensitive documents relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation were made public.

As the UK mainstream media rushed to reports of the suicide bomber’s conversion to Christianity, suggestions were also made that he was only playing with the Church of England to improve his chances of staying in Great Britain. Brittany.

Although he apparently lied to immigration officials and his asylum claim and subsequent appeals were rejected, Al Swealmeen was not deported from the country. This ultimately gave him the freedom to buy bomb components and lead the terror attack in which he died at Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Remembrance Sunday – the day the UK pays homage. to soldiers killed in action.

Commenting on the government’s failure to protect its citizens by actually enforcing immigration laws, Brexit leader Nigel Farage wrote on Monday: “Johnson is ultimately responsible for the care of his people. It is the sacred duty of every prime minister. It should prevail over all others. However, the current occupant of 10 Downing Street seems to have given up his post.

Responding to reports that Al Swealmeen used a fraudulent passport to enter Britain, Farage said: “He used false documents to enter Britain in 2014 and was able to circle officials for seven. years, staying in this country and living off taxpayers. It is proof that deportation has become a very rare phenomenon.

“If this is what the left calls ‘diversity’, I can assure them that the vast majority of us don’t want it.
