It was discovered today that the suicide bomber from Liverpool had confessed to having used fake documents in order to enter Britain. 

Emad Al Swealmeen was a Poppy Day Suicide Attacker, aged 32. He is from Iraq but obtained a Jordanian Visa and Passport to deceive Border Control when he came as an Asylum Seeker in 2014.

Al Swealmeen died when his own-built Improvised explosive Device went off in a taxi parked outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

However, shocking new evidence revealed that the then 25-year-old failed asylum seeker had admitted to immigration officials that he falsified his passport and visa during a screening interview shortly after arriving in Britain.

The Sun obtained a 35-page Home Office dossier. It shows Al Swealmeen’s skill to create a complex web of lies to deceive immigration officers. This allowed him to stay in Britain for seven more years, even though his application was rejected.

In a bid for the UK to grant him refugee status, the fanatic declared he was from Syria.

The border guards suspected of attempting to interrogate him about his family’s time in Syria and his travel to Britain, before forcing the manipulative liar into a confession.

Al Swealmeen received a formal warning from investigators. They told him that he had lied to get into the UK. He was denied formal asylum in 2016 and his appeal was declined.

Emad Al-Swealmeen (32), was originally from Iraq, but had a Jordanian passport to fool border controls when he came to the UK in 2014.

His homemade bomb blew up as he approached the hospital after he was 'jolted'. Experts have suggested it could have been a poorly made Mother of Satan device or even one put together with fireworks

After being ‘jolted,’ his homemade bomb burst as soon as he reached the hospital. Experts suggest it may have been either a Mother of Satan device made poorly or even one that was assembled with fireworks.

These shocking revelations come after police discovered that Liverpool bomber Emad al Swealmeen began building his bomb factory at a rented bedit in April.  

After being confirmed and baptized at Liverpool Cathedral in 2017, he tried other desperate ways to seek asylum.

According to immigration sources, Al Swealmeen tried to murder women and children on Remembrance Sunday by using a false identity. He also made numerous appeals for asylum to be removed from the UK. 

Despite multiple unsuccessful asylum claims, the bomber was permitted to remain in the UK for seven more years. He was also arrested for waving a large knife in public. Then, he found Jesus Christ and appealed again. 

Leaked documents of the Home Office from 2014 reveal that Al Swealmeen was allowed to fly into London via United Arab Emirates. He was then given an Arabic translator so he could interview for asylum. 

According to his claim, he was born in Syria and moved to the UAE in 1999. He then returned to Syria during its civil war in 2013. Al Swealmeen’s Iraqi roots have been confirmed by his relatives. 

Al Swealmeen said he traveled 23 hours from the UAE by bus to Nassib on the Jordan-Syria border. He wanted to go home to Deir ez-Zor where he was a soldier in one of Syria’s most bloody battlegrounds.

He then claimed he paid £220 to a corrupt border official to safely cross into his ‘home’.  

Al Swealmeen's other desperate bids for asylum included converting to Christianity, after he was baptised and confirmed at Liverpool Cathedral in 2017

Al Swealmeen made other desperate attempts to get asylum after converting Christianity. He was confirmed and baptized at Liverpool Cathedral in 2017.

One week after the attack, Liverpool residents are praised for their togetherness

Liverpool residents were applauded for standing shoulder to shoulder in the wake the Remembrance Day attack. They also reminded the public that they serve as the ‘eyes’ and ears for the police fighting terror.

A week following the explosion at the city’s women’s hospital, officials expressed their appreciation for the patience and understanding of the locals.

Police said the bomb that was used in this incident was a homemade explosive, with ball bearings attached. They also claimed it could have led to’significant injury and death. 

Police said officers are working ’round the clock’ to investigate the case and that more work is needed to defeat terrorism. They also promised to do their best to protect the city during the holiday season.

Seven days following the explosion, tributes were paid to the reactions of the public and emergency personnel. 

MailOnline is aware that an Islamist plot may be one avenue of investigation, but MailOnline also understands that investigators remain open-minded and are yet to determine the motives.

Security services and police are continuing to work together on understanding the situation. 


Quickly, the terrorist’s interrogator became skeptical about Al Swealmeen’s details and pressed on to questions about Deir ez-Zor.

Al Swealmeen claimed that he lived in central London with his relatives, and survived on the rations his family stored. He also visited his grandparents’ home “to be safe” amid constant shelling.

Al Swealmeen couldn’t name any local mosques or streets but was able identify the regime that had been in control when he lived there. 

He said that Border Force documents proving his Syrian nationality were ‘destroyed’. This meant it was no longer safe to stay in Syria, and could have been destroyed at any moment.

Initial attempts by the Poppy Day attacker to claim he didn’t know whether his Jordanian visa and passport were genuine or fake, as they were given him by people-smugglers.

However, his lies unraveled when he revealed that he didn’t have Jordanian citizenship but had entered the UK illegally through a passport.  

Al Swealmeen received a formal “credibility warning”, but he incredulously kept telling officers that he had two choices. Or, you can choose to stay or die. 

He replied, “At that time the visa application was made you were not in Syria. You were living in the UAE.” As you had already fled Syria, it is not an issue of “stay or perish”.

“You deceived and lied to gain entry into the UK.” Why should you believe I am from Syria? Al Swealmeen could not answer this question.   

Al Swealmeen adopted the name Enzo Elmeni to submit an asylum request. This was in recognition of his affection for Ferrari’s founder. 

After being expelled from his accommodation in London by the Home Office, the bomber eventually moved into the apartment above the Pizza Shop where he was employed in Sefton.

MailOnline received a statement from the Home Office confirming that it was examining urgently the leakage of “sensitive documents relevant for an ongoing criminal investigation”. 

Now, officers have found traces of chemical compounds in the bomb factory where the terrorist lived. This indicates that he may have experimented using various explosives.

One of the recipes he is understood to have followed was for hexamethylene triperoxide diamine – the same material used by the July 7 2005 London bombers.

Police counter-terrorism officers confirmed that they believed the Remembrance Day weapon of the 32-year old would have resulted in’significant injury, or even death’ had it gone off outside.

The bomber, however, was only killed when it detonated outside the taxi of innocent David Perry.

Also, Friday’s police report revealed that Al Swealmeen, a criminal who purchased bomb components individually, used fake names and avoided flagging systems.

Officers from the bomb squad arrived on the spot after the explosion. After police raids, a counter-terrorist police spokesperson stated that many suspicious packages were found by officers.

Residents were directed to live indoors while others were forbidden from going back to their houses. Instead, they were directed to shelter at a local primary school.

Al Swealmeen was inside the taxi when it exploded. Forensic testing is still underway. He died last night from injuries suffered in the explosion and the fire that followed.
