Longford - Criminal Gangs posing as Refugees
Writing in the Independent this week , Journalist Eamon Dillon of the Sunday World recounts an interview with murdered gangland criminal Hamid Sanambar back in 2015 in which Sanambar told him that there was a criminal gang in Longford posing as Refugees and they were carrying out dozens of well-organised scams . Mr Sanambar revealed in the interview that he himself had claimed refugee status in Ireland partly because he was in trouble with police back in Iran .
The revelations raise further questions about the type of people claiming refugee status in Ireland and safety of Irish Citizens as the number of asylum applications continue to rise .
The Limerick Post Newspaper recently came under fire for reporting on a string of assaults and threatening behaviour on staff by asylum seekers at an accommodation centre in Limerick . The Newspaper interviewed an immigrant worker at the centre , and also secured video and documentary evidence of a number of assaults on staff that were reported to gardaí at the time including statements from other residents of the centre testifying to incidents of intimidation and expressing concern over increasing radicalisation among recent arrivals to the centres .
The Newspaper was forced to remove the story following complaints by a number of migrant NGOs including Doras Luimni , the Irish Refugee Council and ENAR Ireland .
Then there was the case of asylum seeker Mohamed Morei , who came to Ireland after being refused asylum in the UK and went on a stabbing rampage in Co Louth , in which a young Japanese man Yosuke Sasaki was killed and two others injured.
As in other Countries , a large number of sexual assaults have also been perpetrated by asylum applicants such as the deeply disturbing Mohammad Sarwar case , a pakistani asylum seeker who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a man with a learning disability on a Bus in Limerick . It was reported at the time that Mr Sarwar had also followed staff at his accommodation centre to their home and was seen hanging around playgrounds .
