itsnotoutthere Posted February 27 #1 Share Posted February 27 (edited) A Jamaican criminal whose deportation was stopped by Labour MPs and a swathe of celebrities went on to commit murder. Ernesto Elliott stabbed a man in the heart during a violent knife fight over drugs in June 2021. Elliott was due to be deported on a Home Office flight in December 2020, the Daily Mail revealed. In January, Elliott was sentenced to 26 years for the murder of Nathaniel Eyewu-Ago in Greenwich in an incident that took place during the day. Elliott, who had previously been convicted of knife crime, was supposed to be one of 23 serious criminals to be deported on a chartered flight to Jamaica. Priti Patel, who was the Home Secretary at the time, said Elliott's crime was evidence of the need to overcome the whims of "do-gooders". Celebrities including Naomi Campbell, actress Thandiwe Newton, Bond star Naomie Harris and historian David Olusoga all signed an open letter expressing their opposition to the deportation flight. In total 60 famous faces put their names to the letter. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/criminal-whose-deportation-was-cancelled-after-labour-mps-outcry-stabs-man-to-death/ar-AA17Zx1m?ocid=BingHPC&cvid=01f687d68bc04e279095d73d4069ddfb&ei=31 Edited February 27 by itsnotoutthere 1 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
