The UK Home Office last year identified nearly 100 suspected war criminals including Sri Lankans who had made UK immigration applications.


The majority of cases involved people already likely to have been living in Britain for a number of years.

Suspects originated from countries including Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Rwanda, Serbia and Sri Lanka.

The Home Office says it is determined the UK doesn’t become a “refuge for war criminals”.

It made “adverse recommendations” against 99 people who had applied for British citizenship, asylum or leave to remain in the UK.

A further 16 war crimes suspects had applied to enter the UK.


However, the National patriotic movement alleges that war criminals are still living in the UK.
