A convicted murderer from Holland was able to walk through Britain’s porous borders without any checks and went on to attack two police officers with a claw-hammer.
Afghan-born Jamshid Piruz was allowed to enter the UK unchallenged despite being sentenced to 12 years in jail for slaughtering his female tenant in cold-blood after watching a Taliban beheading video.
Fury erupted after it emerged that the jobless 34-year-old was the latest in a string of foreign criminals to commit horrific offences in Britain after exploiting EU free movement rules.
European countries have no obligation to alert the UK about convictions of murderers or sex offenders, meaning many are able to travel to the UK unhindered.
Piruz had been in the UK a matter of days when he launched the frenzied assault on the officers as they investigated a burglary in Crawley, West Sussex.
Days earlier he had assaulted a member of staff at Gatwick Airport – but was released onto the streets by local magistrates.
Piruz got into Britain despite being a convicted murderer in Holland. In June 2006, he murdered his Chinese female tenant by cutting off her head at a house in Almere, a city close to Amsterdam.
This is precisely the sort of thing that led so may Brits to vote for Brexit. Frankly I can’t understand how a Dutch court could hand down a mere 12 year sentence for premeditated murder and then leave the bastard out after only 7 years, apparently free and clear without any probation limitations on travel.
Well, let’s hope the British courts, taking this character’s criminal history into account, sentences him to serve the remainder of his life under lock and key. Otherwise, he will surely kill again.
