Ahmed’s previous deportation flight was halted after holidaymakers, unaware of his crime, demanded he was taken off a Turkish Airlines flight at Heathrow.
A three-minute clip showed passengers applauding as a four-strong Home Office team frogmarched him off the plane, with one holidaymaker shouting: “You’re free, man!”
Six successive Home Secretaries have attempted to remove Ahmed from the UK but legal challenges prevented his deportation.
The victim of the 2008 attack, who is unnamed, described the case as “absolutely shocking”.
She told The Mail on Sunday: “Our legal system is a joke. We used to say we were quite fair; well, we’re not. Nothing about this has been fair.”
Criticising Britain’s justice system, the victim also claimed: “He negated his human rights after he did what he did. It wasn’t a human thing to do.
“Why are his human rights being prioritised above mine and people like me?”
Former Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who was sacked by Rishi Sunak following a backlash about her comments on pro-Palestine protesters, argued Ahmed’s case was an example of criminals exploiting human rights laws to make “spurious, repetitive and ultimately obstructive” legal claims to avoid deportation.
However, the Home Office stressed it has removed 14,700 foreign criminals between January 2019 and March this year.
A spokesman said: “Returning a foreign national offender to their country of origin can involve enormous challenges.
“Occasionally support packages are required to secure agreement from the court to proceed with deportation.”
