Up to 3,000 foreign criminals will be released from prison on to Britain’s streets without any attempt to deport them, Government papers have revealed.
A note sent to probation staff says as few as 250 convicts from European countries will face even preliminary deportation proceedings every year.
It pins the blame on an EU directive which rules that committing a serious crime is no longer sufficient grounds for removal.
The new rules apply to citizens of countries such as Germany, Poland, Romania, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. They also cover those born in countries such as Africa or the Middle East who have been given passports by other EU countries.
