Migrant foster mum's horror after '12-year-old refugee' revealed to be 21-year-old Jihadi
A FOSTER mum who took in a child refugee has told of her horror after discovering he was a 21-year-old jihadi.
Kind-hearted Rosie welcomed Jamal into her family after social workers said he was a 12-year-old orphan who had fled Afghanistan.
But she became suspicious when she noticed how hairy he was, and how adept he was at firing a rifle.
Jamal was rumbled when a dentist estimated he was a decade older than claimed.
Taliban material and child abuse images were later found on his mobile.
The blunder comes after migrants claiming to be children were bussed to the UK from Calais’ Jungle camp.
It is feared terrorists could use the same ruse.
Rosie, whose full name we are hiding to protect her from reprisals, said: “Adults are playing the system. It’s putting families like mine and society as a whole at risk.
On a bus to college he was told to get off by a driver who didn’t believe he was 16. Rosie, who lives in the South East, said: “It’s ridiculous how everybody else could see it but not the social workers.”
Jamal’s behaviour worsened.
He put the 13-year-old in expert holds, demanded cash and got calls from unknown numbers.
...His last words to Rosie were: “I’ll kill you and I know where your children are.”
She added: “I can’t say he was a terrorist but I do think he came from a training camp.
He was a great actor.
“Every day I check the car, and that all the house windows are shut.
I panic because I know he knows our routine.”
Since being arrested for an alleged assault, Jamal has been turned down for asylum but is appealing.
MP David Davies, who is demanding stronger checks, said: “If we don’t do this then we will see men in their 20s placed with vulnerable children in foster care and in classrooms.”
