Even though chemist Sahnoun Daifallah, 50, was jailed for spraying food with his own excrement, a court has ruled that Daifallah can not be deported.
The Algerian received a nine year sentence, handed down by the Bristol Crown Court in 2009 for contaminating food, wine and books at four businesses in May 2008.
An expensive legal battle to deport Daifallah, costing £250,000 has nevertheless failed, the British daily The Daily Mail reported.
The chemist sprayed a mixture of urine and faeces from a container concealed in his laptop bag on food, edibles and children’s books. He sprayed food at the Air Balloon Pub in Birdlip, books at a Waterstones bookshop in Cirencester and two days later, he sprayed produce at a Tesco in Quedgley and at Morrisons in Abbeydale. Damage to the Morrisons was estimated at £700,000.
Staff at the bookshop noticed the smell but only discovered that a total 706 books were contaminated, most of them in the children’s section, after he had left the store. Daifallah denied possession of material to contaminate goods and having an offensive weapon, namely a catapult with marbles.
A Tesco customer saw Daifallah reach into his bag and produce a jet of foul-smelling fluid over the frozen chips. He then moved on to the wine section where a member of staff saw a fine vapour come out of his bag and on to the wine, leaving brown fluid over the shelves. The store had to be closed for two days while it was cleaned and the cost of the damage came to half a million pounds, the Scotsman reported.
The “highly skilled” immigrant was granted refugee status two years after arriving in Britain in 1999. He has been in immigration custody since February 2013, The Sun reported.
Despite two judicial reviews, he remains in Britain. According to the tabloid, the 54 months he has spent in immigration detention have cost the taxpayer £155,000 already. Daifallah’s estimated legal bills of £100,000, brings the cost to a total of £250,000, MailOnline reported.
Alex Wild, of the Taxpayers Alliance told the British Express: “There are far too many cases like this and the cost cannot be justified when the public finances are in such a dire state.”
Daifallah’s lawyers now argue he has been in custody for too long and he should be freed. Some 6 171 foreign national offenders were deported between 2016 and 2017 – the highest number of deportations ever. Over 37 000 foreign national offenders have been removed from the UK since 2010, but the chemist is not one of them.
