A 21-year-old Afghan asylum seeker, who has been found guilty of murdering an aspiring Royal Marine, had previously killed two people in Serbia before posing as a child to sneak into Britain, The Telegraph can reveal. Lawangeen Abdulrahimzai stabbed Thomas Roberts twice in the chest during a row over an e-scooter in Bournemouth, Dorset, in the early hours of March 12, 2022. Mr Roberts, 21, who dreamed of joining the Marines, had been acting as the "peacemaker" after Abdulrahimzai got into an argument with his friend James Medway. Abdulrahimzai was granted asylum in the UK in 2019 after claiming to be an unaccompanied 14-year-old fleeing the Taliban and was placed with a foster family and given a place at a secondary place. But it can now be revealed he lied about his age and was actually an adult who had shot dead two fellow migrants in Serbia on his way to the UK. He was convicted in his absence of the crimes, but was still able to come to the UK after travelling on a ferry from Cherbourg to Poole. The Home Office is now facing serious questions about why Abdulrahimzai was ever allowed into the UK and what checks were done into his age and background.
