Sham marriage vicar update

Posted: September 7, 2010 in British jobs for British workers, Law & Disorder

Update on the Reverend Alex Brown who carried out 360 sham ceremonies.

Yesterday, Monday, the vicar was led out of court in handcuffs to start a four-year jail sentence.

IlieThe Church of England vicar was found guilty of conspiring to breach immigration laws in July.
He was convicted alongside Nigerian immigration solicitor Michael Adelasoye, 50, whose clients, virtually all male failed asylum-seekers from Africa, paid up to £15,000 for a sham wedding to gain permanent residency in the UK.

Also guilty was Ukrainian factory worker Vladymyr Buchak, 33, who provided Eastern European women willing to marry complete strangers for up to £3,000.

Brown presided over 383 marriages at the Church of St Peter and St Paul in St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, between July 2005 and July 2009, a 30-fold rise in marriages held over the previous four years.

Judge Richard Hayward also handed Brown a five-month sentence after he pleaded guilty to solemnising a marriage according to the rites of the Church of England without banns being properly read. The two sentences will run concurrently.

It was a nice little earner for the church too who saw its takings jump from £1,000 in the first six months of 2005 to around £22,000 for the first six months of 2009.

Talking about illegals

IlieTwo illegal immigrants have been caught trying to sneak into the country on board a UK-registered lorry loaded with beer destined for Gloucestershire.

The two men, both Indian nationals, were discovered at 06:15 on 27 August hiding among the boxes of beer after a sniffer dog working at the port of Calais detected their scent and alerted its handler.

The stowaways were handed over to French border police and the vehicle was allowed to continue to the address in Sharpness, Gloucestershire.

A restaurant was closed to customers following a visit from UK Border Agency.

IlieFour illegal immigrants were arrested after they were found working at Masa Japanese Restaurant, 42-46 Baldwin Street, Bristol at lunchtime on Tuesday 31 August 2010.

Two Chinese men aged 29 and 36 were found working as chefs, while a 29-year-old Malaysian woman and 32-year-old Malaysian man were serving customers.

The two Malaysian nationals, who are husband and wife, were arrested and taken to Southmead police station. They are being transferred to immigration detention and will be deported in the coming weeks.

The Chinese men were arrested and taken to Trinity Road police station for further questioning. They were later released on immigration bail and must report regularly to a police station while arrangements are made to deport them. Yeah right, more illegals able to make a run for it and disappear into our community.
