Romanian sex offender to be deported for seond time

A Romanian sex offender is to be deported for a second time after receiving a prison sentence for assaulting his housemate.

Cornel Popa had already been convicted of attempted rape in his home country of Romania and sentenced to 5 years in prison before moving to the UK. After moving to the UK he was convicted of a number of sex offences and put in prison again. After two years in Highgate prison he was deported but returned shortly afterwards using his own passport and the authorities only noticed when he was arrested for assaulting his housemate and threatening him with a broken bottle a couple of weeks ago.

Popa will now spend 3 weeks in custody before being deported once again.
