Il­le­gal work­ers raid

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

FIVE il­le­gal work­ers have been caught in Stam­ford by the UK Border Agency.

Of­fi­cers vis­ited the Vou­jon In­dian res­tau­rant, in Broad Street, at 6.05pm on 10 June. They found five Bangladeshi men who had no per­mis­sion to work in the UK. Checks re­vealed that two of the men, aged 34 and 29, had over­stayed their work per­mits, while a 26 year old had over­stayed his visit visa. All three were ar­rested and de­tained.

A 29-year-old man was iden­ti­fied as an il­le­gal im­mi­grant and a 35-year-old man as a failed asy­lum seeker. They were tem­po­rar­ily re­leased on im­mi­gra­tion bail. The agency is now tak­ing steps to re­move all five men from the UK. The res­tau­rant may face a fine of up to £50,000 un­less it can prove it car­ried out the cor­rect pre-em­ploy­ment checks on the work­ers.
