I have an update on a sham marriage gang that used a restaurant as a cover.
A quick recap
Gyash Uddin, 39, of Ivy Road, Luton, set up marriages between the men and workers at restaurants he owned. Uddin, a Bangladeshi-born British citizen, was behind an organised criminal conspiracy to get male members of his family married off to Polish women so they could remain in this country.
Uddin appeared for sentence having been found guilty earlier this summer of eight offences of conspiring to facilitate a breach of immigration laws by non EU citizens.
Miah, 35, an illegal immigrant also of Ivy Road, Luton, appeared for sentence having earlier been found guilty of two similar charges.
Illegal immigrant Mohammed Dolon Miah, 29, of Spencer Road, Luton, was earlier convicted of two charges of conspiring to facilitate a breach of immigration laws by non EU citizens. He is a nephew of Uddin.
With them in the dock and pleading guilty to one offence of the same charge were Tera Mia, 58, from Hitchin Road, Luton, Polish born Mariusz Rohde, 28, of Studley Road in Luton, his partner Dorota Wysocka, 46, of the same address, Katarzyna Potrykus, 40, of Cowper Street, Luton, Aneta Szczepanik, 36, of Dorset Court, Luton and Kamillia Drozdowska, 28, of Bute Street, Luton.
Razul Miah was jailed for two and a half years,
Dorota Wysocka was jailed for 16 months,
her partner Mariusz Rohde was jailed for 13 months,
Dolon Miah was jailed for two and a half years,
Kamila Drozdowska was jailed for 13 months,
Aneta Szczepanic and Katarzyna Potrykus both got 12 months
and Tera Miah was jailed for eight months.
