Iraqi driver who killed schoolgirl seeks British citizenship
THE father of a schoolgirl who died after being knocked down by a banned driver has urged the Home Office to refuse the Iraqi's citizenship application.
Amy Houston, 12, died in November 2004 after being hit by a vehicle driven by Aso Mohammed Ibrahim.
Her father, Paul, of Argyle Street, Darwen, was left distraught after he learnt that Ibrahim, a failed asylum seeker, was planning to apply to the Home Office for UK citizenship.
The case sparked outrage when Ibrahim, of Whalley Banks, Blackburn, was jailed for four months for driving while disqualified and failing to stop after an accident.
He has never held a UK driving licence and since the accident has been caught driving while disqualifed.
However, Ibrahim has claimed he should be allowed to stay in the UK because his wife has had his baby and is pregnant with their second child.
