Two of the three London Bridge terrorists are believed to have used European Union migration rights to enter Britain, despite one of them having previously had an asylum application rejected.
East London-based Rachid Redouane (above left), 30, who claimed to be Moroccan and Libyan, was refused asylum in Britain at an unspecified date, according to RTÉ News, but was able to settle in the country after marrying in Ireland and winning a ‘4 EU FAM’ residence card.
4 EU FAM cards grant residence rights in the European Economic Area – the EU plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein – to spouses of EU/EEA nationals with origins outside the bloc.
Fellow jihadist Youssef Zaghba (above right), 22, was able to travel to Britain on an Italian identity card under EU Free Movement rules, which do not allow for any limits or effective vetting with respect to intra-union migration.
