Ireland: A Liberian asylum seeker has pleaded guilty to raping a 20 year-old woman

Derry Journal:

A Liberian asylum seeker with an address in Co. Donegal has pleaded guilty at the Crown Court in Derry to raping a 20 years-old woman last year.

Henry Ojaiko, whose address was given as the Cliff View Hostel in Donegal Town, admitted committing the offence in a flat in Derry on June 16 last year.

The 19 years-old defendant was remanded in custody for sentencing on June 22, pending the preparation of a probation report and a victim impact report.

Judge Corinne Philpott Q.C. ruled that a second charge against the defendant, one of indecently assaulting his victim, should not be proceeded with without the leave of the Crown Court or the High Court.

They should send the rapist back to Liberia where he belongs.

His last name does not sound Liberian. Many Africans falsify Liberian nationality to gain asylum in Europe. Did the Liberian embassy confirm that the rapist is a Liberian? If so, he should have been immediately deported and a life sentence without the possibility of parole would have awaited him in Liberia.
