Serial paedophile can stay here if he wants
Saturday 10th November 2012, 10:00AM GMT.
A PREDATORY paedophile who was last week sentenced to five months in prison could be back on Guernsey’s streets within weeks – unless he agrees to go.
Anthony Luckwill, pictured, who tried while visiting the island to lure a 14-year-old boy to his hotel room, cannot be deported once released because the Irish national also holds a UK passport – by law only non-UK nationals can be sent home.
It is understood, however, that he has agreed voluntarily to leave the island upon release – although he could change his mind.
A senior deputy is now calling for the law to be changed also to allow Guernsey to deport UK nationals.
Deputy Dave Jones has long campaigned on child abuse issues and described the current situation as ‘ludicrous’.
