Fraudsters spared jail over U.K. Visa Scam

Recommended Posts

Did you read the whole article, or just the headline? 


Mail sub editors have a reputation for writing lurid, sensationalist headlines which bear little relation to the content of the report!



The gang were all given suspended sentences - Khan received two years; Roxsana, 19 months, Begum, 10 months and Haque, 16 months, all suspended for two years.

Another member of the gang - law student Abul Kalam Muhammad Rezaul Karim, 42 - was given a jail term last year but has also avoided being locked up by going on the run.

Four others, former immigrations advisors Enamul Karim and Kazi Borkot Ullah, both from Dagenham, accountant Jalpa Trivedi, from St Albans and former immigration advisor Mohammed Tamij Uddin, of east London, were jailed in November last year.


The ringleaders are in prison, apart from the one who escaped and can never return to the UK as he'll be sent to prison if he does.


These foot soldiers got suspended sentences. This does not mean they got off. Those serving a suspended sentence are subject to up to 12 conditions including a curfew and doing unpaid work. If they are convicted of another crime during the term, they will have to serve the original sentence plus any sentence for that crime.  


It is quite likely that they will have had their assets seized as the proceeds of crime as well.
