African war criminal can stay in Britain
London: An African war criminal involved in the killing of civilians has been allowed to stay in Britain after he confessed to his crimes, the Daily Mail reported Monday.
The man was a fighter in the Janjaweed militia which killed 300,000 people during the war in Darfur. He came to Britain after hearing it was "a good place to claim asylum".
An immigration tribunal found he was guilty of crimes against humanity after he gave media interviews in which he described shooting countless victims.
But a judge has ruled that the 27-year-old must be allowed to stay in Britain because his life could be at risk if he returned to his home country.
She said that as a result of the media interviews he gave voluntarily in this country in which he criticised his former commanders and revealed embarrassing political information about the conflict, they might try to kill or hurt him if he was sent home.
