On Friday 9th December, Shahin Darvish-Narenjbon pleaded guilty of manslaughter for a crime he committed back in January 2022. Darvish-Narenjbon 33 was charged with the murder of an 88 year old on High Street, Thornton Le-Dale on Wednesday January 5th 2022. He is due to be charged January 30th 2023.

Although there has been a lot of coverage of this story, there are some very important points missed out and this was highlighted through the comment section of local media.

Shahin Darvish-Narenjbon was a failed asylum seeker from Iran who’s visa expired in 2013. Shortly before the visa expired, Shahin claimed asylum. On 17 March 2015, a decision was made to refuse to grant the appellant asylum and to remove him from the United Kingdom by way of directions under Section 47 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. He appealed to the First-tier Tribunal (Judge Aspden) which, in a decision promulgated on 2 September 2015 dismissed the appeal. A further appeal was also dismissed on 1st March 2016.

This instantly leads to the question “Why was this person still in the country”. It has been seven years from the time this man failed his asylum claim to taking the life of an 88 year old. If he is seven years over due, how many more do you think there are all across Great Britain.

If this case shows anything, it shows the immigration system is completely broken from root to core. With over 50,000 crossings by the end of the year, the UK Government really need to get a grip!
