Anger at asylum seeker rape case.

A LABOUR MP last night said heads "should roll" at the Home Office after an asylum seeker raped a 19-year-old girl eight months after a judge ruled that he should be deported.

Norwich North MP Ian Gibson said the Home Office lurched "from one scandal to the next" as it emerged that Turk Bilal Darioglu, 30, raped the woman days after immigration officials had been sent to seize him.

Darioglu failed in an appeal against a deportation order in February, 2006.

In October, he raped a 19-year-old woman in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, after picking her up as she walked home after a night out drinking with friends.

Dr Gibson yesterday accused the Home Office of "sloppy management" as details of the case emerged.

"There has been a lot of sloppy management over this situation. It is intolerable and presents a real risk to the public," he said.

"Somebody's head should roll for failing to carry out what should be an elementary job.

"We seem to lurch from one scandal to the next at the Home Office and it is an embarrassment, especially as we were elected on the back of a manifesto pledging to tackle crime and immigration."

Yesterday, Home Office sources said Darioglu committed the offence while waiting for a judge to rule on an appeal but later said he had raped after a judge turned the appeal down.

Darioglu admitted raping the teenager at Norwich Crown Court yesterday.
