Illegal Nigerian in sham wedding.

Posted: June 19, 2010 in Law & Disorder

IlieA Nigerian man, illegally in the UK, has been jailed for 14 months after admitting he entered into a sham marriage in a bid to remain in the UK.

Henry Ohachu, 28, pleaded guilty at Chelmsford Crown Court to a charge of facilitating a breach of immigration controls.

Ohachu, who had overstayed his visa, was arrested by officers from the UK Border Agency’s immigration crime team east on 5 May at his home address in Thornbeach Road, Lewisham, London.

Earlier that day Ohachu had married a Dutch woman in St Andrew’s Church in Catford. In the police interview he admitted that he had paid £2,000 to a third party to arrange the marriage, hoping that it would help his application to remain in the UK.

Ohachu said that he had paid for the woman to fly into Stansted Airport on at least four occasions so that arrangements for the wedding could be made.

Ohachu will be considered for deportation when he finishes his sentence. Maybe we should deport him to Netherlands to be with his sham Dutch bride.

Paedophile spared court.

A man who subjected a boy to several years of sex attacks has been spared court and handed a police caution.

Although the offender, in his 20s from Sevenoaks, targeted two boys, both from the Sevenoaks area, he is still free to walk the streets unsupervised.

One of the victims, now aged 13, is receiving counselling for the assaults which police believe were carried out between 2005-09. His parents had no idea he was being touched indecently when they visited the offender’s mother.

A second boy, a friend of the first victim who was ten at the time of the incident, was taken behind a tree in Knole Park to be assaulted while their families were having a day out together.

Both of the children’s cases have been thrown out by the Crown Prosecution Service. The families say they were told the man cannot appear in court because he is unable to understand the judicial system due to learning difficulties.

Sarah Kelly, of The National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said: “More needs to be done, whether that is looking at a particular treatment or having him in some kind of secure establishment for people with learning difficulties.

“The prison sentence might not be the appropriate sentencing, but there are other organisations who will offer residential care. The fact he’s done it twice means, we believe, he’s likely to do it again, but sentencing generally is far too lenient.”

    Learning difficulties or not, I bet he has learned what he can get away with!
