A CONVICTED rapist and illegal migrant from Iran has been given extra taxpayers’ cash to visit his son – because his benefits money is spent on cigarettes.

Home Secretary Theresa May has been told the asylum seeker can claim travel expenses

The illegal, who slipped into Britain in 2004, has been awarded the extra cash because the £14-a-day he spends on nicotine means he does not have enough to pay the £13.55 fare from his home in Cosham, near Portsmouth, to Canterbury, Kent, which is 130 miles away.

A judge ruled the failed asylum seeker is entitled to claim travel expenses for the fortnightly visits so his human rights are not breached.So far the violent criminal has evaded deportation racking up hundreds of thousands of pounds in court fees – funded by the taxpayer – in the process.ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND PROUD – WHERE THEY HIDE

He had argued that the Home Secretary Theresa May’s refusal to pay was “unjustifiable”.

Now the High Court has said the man should be given the green light to claim costs as he had already cut down on food to support his nicotine habit.

Judge Michael Kent said that not paying travel expenses to the rapist flouted human rights legislation which makes private and family life sacrosanct.

He said the Home Secretary’s decision had not taken into account the “best interests” of the British-born child.

However, the decision has been criticised by some who say the ruling makes a mockery of the law.

Tory MP Philip Hollobone said: “Many people up and down the country will be absolutely appalled by what is yet another abuse of the justice system.

“This is one more reason why the Government must get on with abolishing the Human Rights Act so we can restore common sense to the law.”

After failed asylum bids, the man was convicted of rape in 2009 and sentenced to five years in prison.Instead of being deported upon his release, he went to live in Brighton and later struck up a relationship with a woman who gave birth to his child in September 2013.He was not present for the birth as he was in jail for drug offences and upon his release in December of that year, his relationship with the child’s mother had broken down.
