(PresidentialWire.com)- As the West flings open its doors to the glut of Afghan “refugees” evacuated out of Kabul during President Biden’s failed withdrawal, a recent arrest of an Afghan “refugee” in the UK is causing some concern about how effectively these refugees can be vetted.
This summer an Afghan refugee wanted in the gang rape and murder of a 13-year-old Austrian girl, managed to sneak into Britain aboard a boat of refugees and claim asylum by using a fake name.
Rasuili Zubaidullah, 22, despite being wanted in Austria, was housed at a UK hotel at taxpayers’ expense for nearly two weeks before his true identity was discovered.
Immigration officials were unaware that Zubaidullah was wanted in connection to the brutal attack in Vienna three weeks earlier until they received a tip from Austrian police. Officers from the National Extradition Unit apprehended Zubaidullah at his hotel in Whitechapel on July 29. He is now facing extradition proceedings.
The fear over importing so many Afghan refugees from the Kabul airlift has brought Zubaidullah’s case into the spotlight for obvious reasons.
Zubaidullah fled Austria after the body of a missing 13-year-old girl was found propped up by a tree in central Vienna on June 26. She was reported missing by her parents three days earlier. The victim, known only by her first name Leonie, had been drugged and gang raped, then was suffocated.
Police launched a manhunt for the Afghan suspects who had boasted of having “wild sex” after meeting the girl through Instagram. Detectives believed Zubaidullah had fled to Italy, so an international manhunt began.
Police believe Zubaidullah took a train at Innsbruck before making his way across the Continent to northern France, where he paid smugglers to take him across the Channel.
At least two of the men suspected of being involved were already facing deportation prior to the murder.
On September 3, Zubaidullah appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court for his extradition proceedings. He is scheduled to appear again on October 1, and faces a full extradition hearing in January.
Unsurprisingly, Zubaidullah’s case has raised concerns over any possible “vetting” process for the flood of Afghan refugees evacuated out of Afghanistan. UK Border Force staff acknowledge that a small number of Afghans flying into Heathrow from Kabul either did not have any ID or provided false papers when they boarded their flights.
