Cherie Blair has been ‘had’

You’ve got to laugh haven’t you
IlieCherie Blair’s half-sister, Lauren Booth has just been forced to declared herself bankrupt. Lauren, a writer, broadcaster and human rights activist who recently converted to Islam after she visited a shrine in Iran, is named in the London Gazette as having petitioned for bankruptcy in the run-up to Christmas.
One of her creditors is Cherie, who lent her £15,000 last year, but which ­Lauren has failed to pay back.
Cherie, who shares the same father with Lauren — Till Death Us Do Part actor Tony Booth — understandably felt Lauren had a cheek to ask her for money, considering how critical Lauren has been over Blair’s role in the war in Iraq. She has written at length on the subject.

Apparently Cherie was adamant the £15,000 loan would be strictly a short-term loan till her sister could get back on her feet. It was, a loan has become a gift! Cherie even had a lawyer draw up a contract which stretched to several pages and insisted Lauren sign it before she wrote out the cheque. She wanted everything done legally so she would be sure of getting her money back. Oh well you can’t trust anyone these days can you, Cherie should have learnt that being married to Tony.
Now Cherie will have to line up with all the other creditors.

Nigerian and Czech sham marriage

IlieA man has been jailed for trying to take part in a sham marriage at a church in east London. Roman Horvath, a 35-year-old Czech national from Fulham Street in Oldham, was arrested by officers from the UK Border Agency’s London immigration crime team as he arrived for a wedding rehearsal at St Mary Magdalene church on Norman Road, East Ham in July.

He was about to marry 34-year-old Nigerian Victoria Adesola in exchange for cash, with the aim of helping her stay in the UK. Nigeria must be nearly empty of people considering how many are caught in the UK. However, she had supplied the church with a counterfeit visa and forged utility bills. Around £1,500 in cash was found during a search of her home in Trinity Gardens, E16.

During a hearing at Inner London Crown Court on Wednesday 15 December, Horvath pleaded guilty to assisting illegal immigration, and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Adesola was jailed for 2 years in September after admitting perjury and offences under the Identity Cards Act. She will be deported at the end of her sentence. That old chestnut!

Talking about dodgy documents

Three people have been jailed for illegally smuggling about 100 passports and identity documents into the UK, following an investigation by the UK Border Agency’s west London immigration crime team.

Vladimir Kurlovich, a naturalised British citizen from Belarus, and Ukrainian nationals Vasily Kovbas and Ewa Marfijana were arrested after raids on properties in Keswick Gardens, Wembley, and St Paul’s Avenue, Willesden Green, on Friday 20 August 2010. Documents including Lithuanian, Polish and Latvian passports, identity cards and driving licences were found at both addresses.

The trio were charged with offences under the Identity Cards Act, and pleaded guilty following a hearing at Harrow Crown Court. On Thursday 16 December, 36-year-old Kovbas was jailed for 16 months and Marfijana, aged 50, was sentenced to 11 months in prison. On Friday 17 December, 39-year-old Kurlovich was given a 12-month sentence. No mention of deportation?

The operation followed the discovery of two packages of Lithuanian passports by UK Border Agency officers working at the Mount Pleasant postal sorting office in north London.
All but one of the documents discovered at the addresses in Willesden Green and Wembley were genuine, and it is suspected that they had been stolen from or sold by their original owners.
