Foreign criminals to be DEPORTED despite human rights: Judges in landmark ruling

Lady Justice Rafferty, who sat alongside Lord Justice Tomlinson, said: “Neither the British nationality of CT’s children nor their likely separation from their father for a long time is exceptional circumstances which outweigh the public interest in his deportation.”

CT first arrived in Britain in 1991, having been granted refugee status and indefinite leave to remain.

In September 1997, he was convicted at the Old Bailey of attempted murder and possession of a loaded firearm with intent to endanger life, and was sentenced to jail terms of seven and four years to run concurrently.

Then, in June 2009 at Snaresbrook Crown Court, he was convicted of 2006 conspiracies to cultivate and supply cannabis, receiving a four-year sentence.
