Rachid Ramda jailed for life - after hanging out in UK for 10 years claiming asylum

Daily Mail Via JihadWatch:
A terrorist mastermind who was harboured by the British government as an asylum seeker for more than ten years has finally been sent to prison for life.
Rachid Ramda, 39, pointed his fingers skyward and shouted 'I'm innocent - praise Allah' as a Paris appeal court confirmed his sentence for a series of attacks on the city's underground system which left eight dead and hundreds injured.
He will now spend a minimum of 22 years behind bars, with France's Advocate General Anne Vosgien saying he should 'never be given the chance to reoffend again'.
Despite being a prime suspect for the 1995 bombing of the St Michel Metro station, Algerian-born Ramda was granted political asylum in Britain soon afterwards.
Although he was imprisoned while in the UK, his time there caused a diplomatic protest, with the French dubbing the capital 'Londonistan' because of its reputation for sheltering Muslim terrorists.
It was not until after the 7/7 attacks on the London Underground in 2005 that Ramda was finally sent back to France to face trial.

Good thing the UK is relaxing their asylum regulations to ease up the backlog.
