Britain: An African immigrant who lured a vulnerable schoolgirl to a house for sex cannot be deported – because he is a member of a "persecuted tribe"
Jumaa Kater Saleh, 24, was convicted as part of a predatory sex gang for the deliberate, targeted abuse of a young and vulnerable girl, who was aged 13 at the time. But he was allowed to remain in Britain under human rights law because he faced mistreatment if sent back to Sudan. He claimed that he was a member of the Zaghawa tribe, which has been persecuted by government forces and Arab tribe militia. And it has been ruled that he can stay indefinitely, unless a court decides that the "threat" diminishes and it is safe for him to return to Africa.
