    And eventually they might realise that they have one thing in common....

    Immigration Adviser Held Over Visa Fraud


    5:53pm UK, Monday September 12, 2011
    Sky News Investigations Team
    Three people have been arrested on suspicion of immigration fraud following a Sky News investigation into sham marriages.


    UK Border Agency police visited an address in Wembley and detained a Home Office licensed immigration adviser and his wife, while a third person was detained at a separate address.
    Jayesh Patel was first arrested in May 2010 after a Sky report revealed he had offered to sell a groom for 12,500 to an undercover reporter who wanted to avoid immigration controls.
    Information found on Patel's computer suggested he was involved in Tier 1 visa fraud by topping-up applicants' legitimate earnings with bogus salaries.
    Tier 1 visas were designed to attract highly-skilled workers from outside the European Union, such as doctors or scientists, who could contribute most to the UK economy.
    Migrants coming to the UK under this scheme did not even need a job offer before leaving their country of origin.

    But applicants did need to score 75 points under the Tier 1 system. Points were awarded for criteria including the ability to speak English and proof of earnings.
    But low-skilled applicants intent on defrauding the system sometimes used bogus employment histories and payslips issued through fake companies set up by corrupt solicitors and immigration advisers.
    The Tier 1 scheme did not deliver as the Government hoped; only a third of successful Tier 1 applicants went on to obtain highly-skilled work and in April 2011 the Tier 1 visa route was closed.
    Monday's arrests are the latest attempts by the Home Office to apprehend immigration fraud.
    Immigration Minister Damian Green told Sky News: "We've been concentrating hard on the big facilitators, the international criminals who organise this traffic.
    "Today's arrests show the UK Border Agency will investigate allegations of immigration fraud and take decisive action to apprehend suspects involved in abuse of the system."
    Patel was arrested as part of ongoing investigations into immigration fraud
    Detective Inspector Robert Coxhead, who leads the West London immigration crime team, told Sky News: "My team have been dealing with a number of these cases in the last year and these offences are viewed very seriously by the courts.
    "Hopefully the success we've had will send a clear message to anyone involved in this type of fraud."
    :: UK Border Agency police have run several operations in London against similar attempts at immigration fraud:
    Operation Gilberton 2010: Indian suspect convicted and sentenced to eight years in prison. A further eight beneficiaries were convicted and 271,000 of assets were seized.
    Operation Coffeeville 2010: Two Indian immigration advisers were arrested and 332,000 cash was seized. Both subjects had obtained duplicate passports and fled to India. Nine further co-conspirators were arrested and four beneficiaries charged.
    Operation Inkspell 2011: Indian immigration adviser convicted and sentenced to four and a half years. Thirteen others were arrested, most of whom have pleaded guilty. Assets worth approximately 900,000 confiscated.
    Hmmm, bit fucking difficult, isn't it?

    In my experience the first male child takes the grandfather's name.

    No, it hasn't. It's been in the bottom half of the top 100. The myth that it's been in the top 10 is what's technically called a lie, believed in by what are technically called racists, or, if not yer actual racist, yer actual tabloid readers.

    Not exactly true , while its not in the top 10, that's only because of a technicality ie
    there are several different ways to spell it,
    though they all seem to sound the same,
    and if you add all the variations together it takes the top spot .

    one boy being called mohamud is one too many for me

    Law clerk nailed by Sun: I’m guilty

    By TOM WELLS
    Published: 15 Oct 2011



    A CROOKED court clerk exposed by The Sun for taking cash payments to wipe out drivers' speeding convictions pleaded guilty yesterday.

    Munir Patel, 22, charged 500 a time for tampering with records at Redbridge Magistrates' Court where he worked.
    He was rumbled in a sting operation when he bragged to our undercover investigator that he took bribes "all day long".
    We filmed Patel, of Dagenham, East London, greedily taking ten 50 notes from our man in return for a promise to clear a motorist caught speeding.
    Yesterday he pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court to bribery and misconduct in a public office.
    Patel is the first person prosecuted under tough new anti-bribery laws. He could be jailed for up to ten years when he is sentenced on November 11.
