The "mental health" issue line is getting old. It has been worn out all over Europe in the last few years.
His surname could almost be read as, "All's well, man!"

It seems the guy spat his dummy out because he wasn't given permanent residency.
Apparently his applications for UK residency were denied because he couldn't prove he was from Syria like he alleged - he was a Jordanian national but spent a large part of his life in his mother's native country of Iraq.
As well as that there was an incident where he was waving a knife around and threatening people - why wasn't he charged and deported?
But of course he was a 'lovely guy' and 'wouldn't harm anyone'.
How many of these ticking time bombs are living in our midst?
Wasn't he supposed to have been involved in some kind of sex crime as well?

Fair play but its estimated that around 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
The majority of such managing to get through the day without resorting to blowing things or themselves up.
Problem is when you combine mental health dilemmas with radicalisation its pretty much the perfect storm.

More likely it simply wasn't widely reported. I think that it was hassling a lady or something. Not being a serial rapist.

no -- no means no - yes means yes - perhaps you have a bigger problem with your understanding of English.
I could but I don't want to does not mean you haven't.
The Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, a national court that deals with appeals, told the BBC that Al Swealmeen had sought to lodge an appeal after he had lost his case in a lower court that reviews Home Office decisions.
But this attempted appeal to the court was refused without ever going to a full hearing - meaning that a judge concluded there were no grounds to overturn the decision.
The tribunal has not confirmed when that decision was taken but it is believed to have been in early 2017.
