Khater was born in Darfur, Sudan and told immigration officials he had left the country in 2008, travelling to Libya and then to Greece, France and on to Britain where he arrived in July 2010.
He claimed he had been involved with the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) in Sudan and had been detained and tortured by the Sudanese authorities.
He was granted leave to remain on July 26, 2010, and worked as a security guard for Portcullis Security Solutions from late 2016 beginning an accountancy degree at Coventry University the following year.OK, so far, so usual...
On August 13, the day before the attack, he drove to Peterborough to apply for a passport through the fast-track scheme but was told he was ineligible to use the scheme because it was his first application.A passport? Where did he want to go?
Three years earlier, his father had passed away and his mother had also become ill and he wanted to go home, he said.'Home'. Let that sink in. The place he supposedly fled from in fear of his life.
Yet this would have raised no alarm bells, no reconsideration of his claims. No renewed interest in him at all.
Why is everyone piling on the security services, and ignoring the shambles of the Immigration Service?
