Same old, same old

Posted: February 3, 2011 in Broken Britain

IlieFour wanna-be illegals hiding in a lorry headed for Stafford, yes they were Eritrean again, were sniffed out by UK Border Agency detection dog Willow, a four-year-old Labrador. Willow sounds like a good name for a call girl doesn’t it?.

At 8.45am on 22 January UK Border Agency officers at Calais, checking vehicles bound for Dover, examined a Polish registered freight vehicle with a Polish driver which was carrying a load of plastic tubing en route to Stafford.

The stowaways were removed from the lorry before being handed over to the French Frontier Police probably to be let out the back door to try another night to enter UK. Yes, once again the offending lorry was allowed to continue its journey.

More Nigerian sham marriages to eastern Europeans and yes it was in Accrington.

A Nigerian groom was jailed for his part in staging a sham marriage in a bid to beat UK immigration rules.

Adegboyega Aderinsoye Adekunle, or ‘Triple A’ to his mates, a 36-year-old Nigerian and his ‘bride’, Ingrid Gulasova, a 38-year-old Slovakian national, were arrested by the UK Border Agency after it emerged that they had taken part in a sham marriage on 18 June 2009 at St Andrews Church, Accrington, Lancashire.

At Burnley Crown Court the couple were sentenced to jail terms having pleaded guilty to charges at an earlier court hearing. Adekunle, who was living in London, was jailed for 21 months for perjury, identity card offences and seeking leave to remain by deception. Gulasova’s sentencing was adjourned until 11 February.

Also on the same day at Burnley Crown Court Nadesa Mirgova, a 26-year-old Czech national who was arrested by the UK Border Agency after it emerged that she had taken part in a separate sham marriage at the same Lancashire church on 9 May 2009. Mirgova had also pleaded guilty to charges at an earlier court hearing and today was sentenced to 16 months for perjury and assisting unlawful immigration,

A crooked pastor, pastor not pastie, jailed

A pastor at a Birmingham church has been jailed for 15 months for forging documents and offering unqualified immigration advice to help foreign nationals illegally enter the UK.

David Morrison, a pastor at the Word Life Centre, William Street North, Newtown, Birmingham, had pleaded guilty on 12 November 2010 to providing false representation in immigration cases having previously pleaded guilty on 28 October 2010 to perverting the course of justice.

He was sentenced yesterday at Birmingham Crown Court to 15 months for perverting the course of justice and to 9 months for providing false representation in immigration cases. The judge directed that the sentences should run concurrently.

Morrison, 41, of Erdington, was arrested at his home on 21 April 2010 by officers from the UK Border Agency’s West Midlands immigration crime team.

Officers were acting on intelligence that Morrison had provided false bank statements and letters to Immigration Tribunals on behalf of foreign nationals who had appealed against decisions to remove them from the UK or to refuse them visas to come to the UK. The majority of these appeals were rejected, thank goodness for that!

UK Border Agency investigators found that Morrison had also personally represented several cases at Immigration Appeal Tribunals even though he was not, as required by law, registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner.

Morrison had supplied a bank statement, when acting as a sponsor for a foreign national, which showed that he had over £150,000 in his account. Officers found, however, that his HSBC account had been closed several months previously with Morrison owing the bank £900.

Money for world’s poor spent on ‘jolly’ for the Pope

Money intended to alleviate poverty in the world’s poorest countries was used to help fund the Pope’s visit to the UK.
The government raided the international aid budget for almost £2 million to cover some of the cost of the papal visit last year.

A report published today by the Commons international development select committee has questioned why £1.85m was taken out of international aid to fund the visit despite a pledge by Prime Minister David Cameron that the budget would be protected.

Yes, Downing Street David prefers to throw people on the dole rather than cut foreign aid.
