Previous posting on the sham marriage.

A 27-year-old Columbian woman and a Peruvian man, aged 26, were found to be working illegally on a poncho stall.

Two Indian men, aged 26 and 49, were also arrested. The 26-year-old was identified as a failed asylum seeker with no right to work, the 49-year-old had entered the country illegally.

A 21-year-old Senegalese woman was stopped at the traders’ entrance to the site and was found to be an illegal entrant.

On 20 August, a 48-year-old Indian man, who had overstayed his visit visa, was caught working illegally on a tikka masala stall.

Two Eritrean men were found working without permission when they arrived to pick litter on the final day of the festival. These two illegal workers were identified as failed asylum seekers.

Talking about Eritreans

Five Eritreans stowaways were caught trying to sneak into the UK in the back of a lorry carrying chemicals to a depot in Thatcham, Berkshire.
The four women and a man from Eritrea were discovered on the morning of 19 August after a sniffer dog working at the port of Calais in France detected the scent of humans and alerted his handler.
UK Border Agency officers then opened the Polish registered vehicle and found the men hiding within the load.

Four illegals found in one restaurant

The illegal workers were been found at Nibana Restaurant, Morshead Road, Crownhill, Plymouth on Tuesday 24 August.

IlieA 27-year-old Bangladeshi kitchen worker was arrested and taken to Charles Cross police station for further questioning.
An 18-year-old Iranian man who was working in the kitchen and a 22-year-old Bangladeshi waiter were stopped from working and dealt with at the scene. They have immigration applications being processed by the agency but do not have permission to work. If the applications are turned down, they will be deported mind you only if numerous appeals fail I shouldn’t wonder.

A 24-year-old Bangladeshi man working at Nibana told officers that he had permission to work in the UK and initial checks indicated that this was the case but alas for him later checks revealed that his visa had expired in July and he was therefore in the UK illegally.

Officers returned to the restaurant the following day where the man, who unbelievably hadn’t scarpered, was arrested and taken to Charles Cross police station. He is also being held in immigration detention pending his removal from the UK.
