Sex offender in UK eight years after asylum claim rejected

DEPORTATION THREAT: Sarafa Salami

A MAN convicted of sexual assaulting a young woman is still living in the UK

Sarafa Salami, who was born in Togo, West Africa, was jailed for fours years in 2005 for sexually assaulting a 21-year-old student in Liverpool.

The father of two was ordered to return to Togo upon his release in 2009, but is still living in the UK with his partner and small children two years later.

Salami, whose asylum application was rejected in 2003, three years after he arrived in the UK, claims that his human right to a family life would be violated if he is sent back to his native Togo. He is thought to have re-applied after fathering two children.

In 2005, the 48-year-old sexually assaulted the unnamed woman, a student a Liverpool’s John Moores University where he worked as a part-time cleaner.

After a night out, the 21-year old student, who worked for the same cleaning company as Salami, waited with a friend and the father of two at a taxi rank in Liverpool’s city centre.

Her friend is said to have flagged down a cab for herself when Salami assured her he would get a taxi for the victim.

The woman, who was drunk, then found herself in a house in Toxteth where Salami attacked her.

He was convicted of sexual assault and cleared of a count of rape.
