Steve Cattell Hougham, Lincolnshire SIR – I am becoming increasingly weary of hearing Home Secretaries complaining about court rulings relating to the Human Rights Act.This was initiated by Jack Straw and has been parroted by his successors, with Theresa May the latest to join in with regard to Jumaa Kater Saleh.
Why do we not do what many other EU countries do, and deport them immediately?
If they wish to appeal, they can do so at their own cost from their own countries.
For Jumaa Kater Saleh to argue that he would persecuted if deported to Sudan is ridiculous.
It is even more disturbing that there are lawyers who are getting fat bringing such cases to court.
Their actions lower respect for the law in the eyes of most decent people.
Malcolm Allen Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire SIR – The only ones who should pay this paedophile any compensation are the judges and lawyers who have ruled and fought for him to stay here.They should also pay for his entire legal aid bill.As Rip and Tammi are artists who earned their living for over twenty years with their woodwork and have their work in the Smithsonian, they appreciate the work of other artists and try to foster interest from visitors to the store.Whatever happened to the maxim, “He who comes to equity must come with clean hands”?Is it really beyond the wit and powers of judges to require compensation awarded to a foreign criminal or failed asylum seeker to be paid (in the former case) to the victim of his crimes or (in the latter) to defray the state’s costs of dealing with someone who had no right to be here in the first place?SIR – It is almost beyond belief that the courts are even considering compensating a convicted paedophile who shouldn’t have been in our country in the first place.
