A Somali criminal is set to pocket thousands of pounds in compensation after scoring a third legal victory over Theresa May.
Abdiweli Gedi, 26, was jailed for six and a half years in 2010 after he deliberately drove into a group outside a nightclub.
An immigration tribunal ruled then it would breach his human rights to send him back to Somalia.
He was released on licence in 2013 and the Home Secretary ordered his deportation.
But in 2014 a judge ruled that returning to Somalia would put him in danger.
Gedi, of Rotherhithe, south-east London, then sued for compensation over limitations on him during proceedings.
Last year, Mr Justice Edis ordered damages for one period of false imprisonment but Gedi appealed over three further periods and yesterday three Court of Appeal judges ruled in his favour.
Jamal Ali, 26, who was left in a coma following Gedi’s attack, said: “I feel very angry that my life, as it was, has been taken away.”
The ruling comes just days after Mrs May called for Britain to quit the European Court for Human Rights.
