People smugglers jailed.

Posted: September 11, 2010 in Broken Britain, Law & Disorder

IlieTwo people from London have been sentenced to more than five years in jail at Canterbury Crown Court after pleading guilty to two counts each of facilitation.

Mohamed Ebrahim Moosa, a 68-year-old pensioner, pictured, from Malvern Road, east London, and his grandson Amir Asif Moosa, 18, a student living at the same address at the time of his arrest, admitted smuggling a total of nine people on two occasions.

Mohammed Moosa was sentenced to five years in prison and Amir Moosa to only eight months in prison.

The first crime, although I would suggest they were doing the UK a favour, was discovered late on 26 August 2009 when the men drove towards the outward car controls area at Eastern Docks in Dover. They were heading for France.

When Kent Police officers conducted a random search of the Moosa’s car, they found two Asian men, an Indian and a Pakistani – hidden in the boot. Neither of them had travel documents and one of them gave a false name. It transpired that they were in the United Kingdom illegally and had been for about a year.

All four were arrested, surely commonsense would say let them leave and tip the French police off, because what actually happened was the two illegal immigrants were taken into UKBA detention and served with the appropriate documents costing the taxpayer money and the illegals still on British soil.

Less than a month later on 17 September 2009, and while still on bail, Mohamed and Amir Moosa were stopped by UKBA officers at the inward passport controls area at the Port of Harwich, Essex. They had just driven off a ferry from Holland.

Their van contained bricks and old carpet but officers found nine illegal immigrants of Indian origin hidden in the back.

Grandfather and grandson were arrested on suspicion of facilitation and later charged.

Talking about UKBA

The UK Border Agency yesterday announced proposals to increase immigration and nationality application fees for all those applying to visit, study, work or stay in the UK from autumn 2010.

Now they’re turning immigration applications into a profitable business where surely their remit is to cut down on immigrants coming into our overcrowded island.

“The UK Border Agency believes that the proposals to increase fees continue to strike the right balance between maintaining secure and effective border controls and ensuring that our fees structure does not inhibit the UK’s ability to attract migrants and visitors who make a valued contribution. This will help to support the immigration system, maintain public confidence and ensure that migration is managed for the benefit of the UK”, says their website.

How will it, there are no jobs, not enough homes and no school places for their offspring!

A better idea would be to raise the cost of applications so high it deters people coming here to put further strain on our infrastructure.

Anyway to change the subject.

IlieInstead of ‘Downing Street David Cameron’ reducing the hard up to below the poverty line he should be focusing on characters such as these;

A couple who claimed £85,000 in benefits despite owning three houses, a holiday home, three cars and five plasma TVs escaped jail yesterday. Emily Morris and Kevin Wraith cheated the system for five years but were given suspended sentences yesterday after admitting fraud.

This character too

A senior banker at bailed-out Lloyds TSB has quit following claims that millions of pounds was channelled to companies set up by his Indian mates.

Andrew Taylor, 46, resigned citing ‘ill health’ as auditors were sent in to probe the accounts of a firm controlled by the two colleagues.

The British executive, jointly responsible for more than 2,000 Lloyds employees in India, allegedly installed the two employees into well-paid posts in which they were ‘effectively writing cheques to themselves’.

The bank, which is 43% owned by the taxpayer, was sacking thousands of British workers to cut costs while this fraud was going on.

    I just wondered what figure or scale of benefit fraud has to be committed in order to go to prison. It seems to be a case of being caught, going to court and simply bring given a slap on the wrist. Wheres the deterrent?
