‘No risk’ paedophile migrant to stay in UK

A JUDGE sparked outrage yesterday by ruling that an illegal immigrant who sexually abused a young girl for three years was “not dangerous” – and free to stay in Britain.

Pervert Nurul Islam will cost taxpayers more than £200,000 after being jailed for 5½ years.

Indian-born Islam, 35, of Oxford, began preying on the victim when she was 12.

He admitted ten counts of sex acts on a child.

But Judge Julian Hall told him at Oxford Crown Court: “I do not make a recommendation for deportation and I do not find you are dangerous.

“This is not a man who is going to go out on to the street looking to cause harm.”

The Home Office says criminals from outside Europe should be deported if jailed for more than 12 months.

The judge’s decision was slammed as “outrageous” by UKIP MP Bob Spink last night.

He said: “This man has broken the law to get into the country, then broken the law while he is here.”

Mark Wallace, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, added: “This sends out an awful message.”

Judge Hall previously jailed a rapist for only two years, saying his ten-year-old victim was dressed provocatively.

The sentence was doubled by Appeal Court judges last year.
