A ‘Hull’ of a long way away a restaurant gets caught for the third time with illegals.

amaanFive men from Bangladesh have been arrested for immigration offences during enforcement operation at Amaan Restaurant, Hull Road, Anlaby, Hull on 10th October.
Four of those arrested, aged between 25 and 42, were found to have overstayed their visas. The 5th is an 18-year-old failed asylum seeker.
Four of the men were found working in the restaurant and another was located up the ‘apples and pairs’ (stairs) in an accommodation room. All five men are now detained pending their removal from the country. The restaurant was also forced to close as there were only six staff on at the time.

It is the third time the restaurant has been raided.

In May, two workers were arrested in front of diners after a raid by police and border officials.
The Bangladeshi men, aged 47 and 23, were led away after being arrested on suspicion of staying in the UK after their visas had expired.
In January 2011, five Bangladeshi men were arrested – two for overstaying their visas, two for illegal entry into the UK and the fifth was a failed asylum seeker with no permission to work.

Let’s see now 12 illegals caught at £10,000 a pop equals a £120,000 fine to pay, never in a million years will they pay that.

Immigration Minister Mark Harper has been quoted as saying: “It is also too easy for companies to evade paying them.”

Takeaway caught twice with illegal workers

Also in Wales

Officers carried out a visit to Spice Fusion on Severn Street, Welshpool, on 10th October to question staff to establish whether they had the right to be in the UK
A 55-year-old Bangladeshi man living in accommodation above the premises was arrested. He is suspected of being in the country illegally and possessing a false passport. After being interviewed at Newtown police station he was released on immigration bail so he can seek illegal work elsewhere.

On 11th October, officers visited Yummies on Heol Y Neuadd, Tumble, Llanelli. A 35-year-old Turkish man discovered in a room behind the kitchen was arrested on suspicion of overstaying his visa. He is now in detention pending removal from the country.

New Immigration Bill

On Thursday 10th October 2013 the Government published the Immigration Bill, which contains a number of proposals to clamp down on illegal working and rogue employers. These include potentially doubling the maximum penalty for those using illegal labour to £20,000 and making it easier to enforce unpaid debts in the civil courts.
That’s all very well but plenty of businesses don’t get the maximum fine nor do some pay it so it might as well be £50,000.
