More Nigerians involved in sham marriages

Posted: July 25, 2010 in British jobs for British workers, Law & Disorder

This business about all these Nigerians being involved in sham marriages is getting out of hand, we need tougher penalties and immediate deportation after serving a prison sentence.

IlieFive people were arrested following a UK Border Agency operation targeting a suspected sham marriage at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in East Ham, East London, at around 16:00 on 22 July.

The ‘bride’, a 33 year old Nigerian woman, was arrested on suspicion of perjury, fraud, immigration offences and an offence under the ID Cards Act. The ‘groom’, a 34 year old Czech national, was arrested on suspicion of assisting unlawful immigration.

Two other men, a 31 year old Czech national and a 34 year old Nigerian national, were also arrested on suspicion of conspiring to facilitate a breach of immigration law.

A fifth person, a 41 year old Nigerian male, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of ID Cards Act offences during a search of a property in Trinity Gardens, Canning Town. All five remain in custody and are being questioned by police and immigration officers.

It is the second such operation in the East Ham area in a little over a week. On Wednesday 14 July three people were arrested at the Church of St Bartholomews in Barking Road.

Talking about Nigerians

Harriet Harman was last night facing claims that she lobbied the Home Office on behalf of a Labour Party donor’s immigrant wife who is living in Britain unlawfully.

Harman was forced to deny any impropriety over the wife of Monday Osaseri, a Nigerian-born businessman who donated money at a pre-Election fundraiser in Ms Harman’s Peckham constituency.

Just days later, in April, he emailed her Commons office to request a meeting to discuss his wife, who has been in the country unlawfully for more than six years. Within weeks, Ms Harman had emailed the Home Office to ask about the progress of her application for leave to stay in the UK.

More illegal workers caught

IlieI wonder if there is a term for a group of illegal workers like, a ‘gaggle’. If you’ve any ideas post them in the comments section of this post.

Ten illegal workers from India have been arrested during co-ordinated raids on premises operated by a West London food firm.

Acting on a tip off, officers from UKBA went to three sites operated by Chhappan Bhog at 09:30 on Thursday 22 July.

Four arrests were made at a factory on Bridge Road in Southall, three at a shop on Broadway, also in Southall, and a further three at another shop on Kingsbury Road, Kingsbury. One employee tried to flee the scene but was caught by officers covering exits. None of the ten men and women aged between 25 and 55 had the right to work in the UK.

This is the second time the company has been visited by the UKBA. A previous raid resulted in four arrests and another fine for Chhappan Bhog. So now’s the time to get tough and shut the business down!

Here’s a good article to explain why businesses employ migrant workers.
