One of the London terrorists was refused asylum to in the UK, but was apparently able to continue living in the country.
Rachid Redouane’s plea for asylum was rejected in 2009, but he is believed to have remained in the country before going on to live in Ireland three years later.
Once there, he married his British girlfriend and was granted a European Union residence card that allowed him to apply for a permit to remain in Britain when he left Ireland.
Irish authorities are reportedly investigating whether he used the arrangement as an effective back door into the UK.
H/t reader squodgy.
