A terror suspect and sex offender with 17 aliases has reportedly been working at Britain’s busiest airport in an alarming security breach.
Career criminal Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamud is said to be on an official terror watchlist but reportedly had access to Heathrow’s runway.
Mohamud, 31, has a criminal record stretching back 11 years including robbery, assault, money laundering and threats to kill.
But airport bosses allegedly failed to carry out a full background check and he was handed a security pass and started work as a kitchen porter in a first-class lounge, according to the Sunday People.
A security source told the paper: ‘How can somebody with a criminal past like this slip through the net?
‘Even if he hadn’t been a terror suspect his convictions should have meant he wasn’t allowed anywhere near a plane – let alone our busiest airport.’
Mohamud is said to be known to the security services and has been interviewed five times in the past two years by anti-terror officers, it is claimed.
