London Bridge Muslim terrorist Rachid Redouane first entered the United Kingdom from his native Morocco at least ten years ago, claiming asylum as a minor—but lied about both his age and his name in order to trick the race-blind liberal British asylum service, it has emerged.
A report in the UK’s Daily Mail, dealing with the official inquest into the death of Redouane and his two Muslim terrorist accomplices Khuram Butt and Youssef Zaghba, revealed that the fake name and date of birth emerged during a part of the hearing dealing with the identification of the nonwhites’ bodies.
According to the Daily Mail, Southwark Coroner’s Court was told that Redouane, 30, entered the country by giving the immigration service the false alias Rachid Elkhdar and said he was five years younger.
The Moroccan, along with Pakistani-born Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and Moroccan Youssef Zaghba, 22, all died from multiple gunshot wounds in Borough market on June 3.
Redouane was initially identified through fingerprints held by the immigration service, which came back in the name of Rachid Elkhdar, date of birth 31 July 1991. However a statement was taken from his wife who stated he used that name when he entered the country and his real name was Rachid Redouane, date of birth July 31, 1986.
Subsequent finger print comparisons made against national identity documents held in Morocco again confirmed the name Rachid Redouane. It then emerged that his real date of birth was July 31, 1991.
It emerged earlier that Redouane’s attempts to acquire asylum failed in 2009, but he remained in the country for three years before going on to try his luck in Ireland.
In Ireland, Redouane took advantage a loophole in Irish law which allows for reciprocal residence between British and Irish nationals to marry a white British girl. He was then granted a European Union residence card that allowed him to apply for a permit to remain in Britain when he left Ireland.
