Rafid “Sudden” Jihad likely to be deported after sentence for hammer attack

The man who tried to kill a 13-year-old in a hammer attack will likely be sent back to Iraq, the same place he left as a refugee more than a decade ago.

Rafid Jihad was convicted of attempted murder in May in the savage attack that left teenager Jacob Mitchell with a fractured skull.

Jihad is very likely to lose his permanent residency and subsequently be deported, his defence lawyer Frank Retar said in Superior Court Thursday afternoon.

The law says permanent residents lose their status if sentenced to longer than six months, or if convicted of a serious crime that comes with a maximum sentence of 10 years or more.

    Will likely be deported? Not good enough. Let’s have some certainty here.

    • I agree he should be gone tomorrow.

        Smash his balls with a hammer first.

    I will only believe it when I hear it has happened until then I don’t believe anything I hear, coming from the government of Canada. This piece of garbage will have how many appeals?

    The article says he is Christian! With a name like Jihad?

    • A friend of mine once dated a Lebanese Christian guy named “Jihad” (first name). For whatever that’s worth.

    Usually judges will reduce the sentences a day just to keep them from being deported,

    Have those holes been filled yet?

    I notice something here, a metal unsound nobody can be deported where as hate spewing islamists with pull can`t.
