The Dutch immigration and naturalization service was justified in its decision to revoke the residency permit of Iraqi man Vino H., the court in Groningen ruled. The 29-year-old man was convicted of killing a 96-year-old Amsterdam woman, affectionately known as Oma Toni.

H. filed a lawsuit against the IND's decision to revoke his residency permit. But the court ruled in the IND's favor, confirming the scrapping of the residency permit and ratifying a 10 year long entry ban to the Netherlands, NU.nl reports. H. will be deported from the Netherlands once his treatment has been completed.

Oma Toni was attacked and stabbed on Govert Flinckstraat in the Amsterdam neighborhood of De Pijp in 2015. She was taking a walk in the neighborhood where she'd lived for decades when she was attacked. The 96-year-old woman died in hospital three weeks later. 

In 2016 H. was convicted of killing Oma Toni and sentenced to institutionalized psychiatric treatment. Experts concluded that he was completely unaccountable due to his mental state, which was why he was not given a prison sentence.
