The Cable spoke to Adil Jaifar, a translator and friend of Kamil, to find out how the disabled Kurdish asylum seeker fell through the gaps of an overstretched system which ultimately failed to protect his life.

On Friday 10 November, Jeffrey Barry was sentenced to a minimum of 23 years in prison for the murder of Kamil Ahmad. The case may be closed, but Adil Jaifar, a translator and friend of Kamil, discusses how the disabled Kurdish asylum seeker was let down, and raises some tough questions which remain unanswered.
