Violent Somali criminal who has been jailed 13 times wins £80,000 payout from taxpayers’ because he was kept in detention for too long

A violent Somali criminal with 30 convictions to his name has won almost £80,000 compensation from the government after he was locked up for too long.

Abdulrahman Mohammed, 39, has been jailed more than a dozen times for crimes including affray, knife possession and multiple assaults and robberies.

But a judge has now ruled that the Home Office kept him in prison for 445 days too long whilst trying to deport him.
