Illegal workers deported

Hampshire Chronicle: Surma Valley, Fordingbridge Surma Valley, Fordingbridge

SIX Hampshire firms have been fined tens of thousands of pounds after being caught employing illegal workers.

The UK Border Agency has revealed a blacklist of six businesses from across the county which have been slapped with financial penalties totalling more than £77,000.

And nine illegal immigrants caught working at the companies in Southampton, the New Forest and Gosport have been deported from the UK as a result of the raids.

All six firms were given the chance to prove that the correct right-to-work checks had been carried out on their staff, after being caught out during visits last summer.

But none of the businesses were able to show that the regulation tests were carried out on their foreign workers.

The Indian Tree, in Market Place, Ringwood, received the biggest fine of £25,000, after being raided on June 7 2012.

Owners of the Rivaaz restaurant, in Station Road, New Milton, were hit with a £17,500 penalty after they were found to be employing illegal immigrants.

Chinatown Takeaway, in Southampton Road, Ringwood, was fined £15,000, while Peking Garden Chinese takeaway, in Lodge Road, Southampton, had to pay £5,000.

Surma Valley Indian Cuisine, in Fordingbridge, was fined the same sum, while The Car Wash, in Grange Road, Gosport, has been forced to pay a £10,000 penalty.

As well as the fines and the removal of nine illegal immigrant workers, UK Border Agency officials are currently investigating eight other people who were found to be working in the county illegally.

Carla Johnson from the UK Border Agency said: “Our officers carry out regular operations throughout Hampshire to target unscrupulous employers who hire illegal workers.

“Illegal working is not a victimless crime as it cheats the taxpayer, undercuts honest employers and potentially exploits some of society’s most vulnerable people.

“It also deprives legitimate job hunters of employment opportunities.

“As these fines show, any employer involved in this sort of activity can expect to pay a heavy financial penalty.

“We are happy to work with businesses and advise what checks need to be carried out on staff.

“However, those who choose to break the law should expect a visit from our officers and to pay a heavy penalty.”

In 2012, the agency served more than 1,200 penalty notices on employers, collecting more than £6 million in penalty fines.

Prosecutions take place in cases where rogue employers knowingly and deliberately use illegal migrant workers, often for personal financial gain.

The offence carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison and an unlimited fine.

Last night the Daily Echo attempted to contact all six businesses.

Mohammed Abdur Rahman, boss at Rivaaz, claimed he “didn’t know” that members of staff were illegal immigrants when he employed them.

The manager of Chinatown, Yan Leung, told the Daily Echo he took over the takeaway after it was visited in June.

Mr Leung said he spoke to UK Border Agency staff in September and they were satisfied that illegal workers were no longer employed there.

The other four businesses did not return the Daily Echo’s calls.

so the fines amount to about a 10th of the cost of detecting the offense. Pathetic.

yeah that's the right attitude!! Nothing like sending a message to the other 1000s of businesses out there employing people. The moral is do the right checks on staff to make sure they are legal end of story!

There's no point in moaning about Unemployment in this country otherwise. It's good that something is being done about it.

Perhaps, just perhaps the agency policing the situation for US should be allowed to claw back what WE are paying it to do the job? Just a thought. Before you judge my "attitude" again please try engaging your remaining brain cell. Thank you for your input but you really should try harder.

Well how about you trying a little harder to be more civilised. The border agencies are the same as police, they do the job and the courts decide on the punishment, however there is no point giving too big a fine as it won't be paid, for example, how much does it cost to have a helicopter and several police car's chasing after some un-employed scroat in a stolen car, and how many giro's would he need to pay back the cost, it woiuld never happen

The UKBA will never get on top of the problem because they are overwhelmed by the amount of illegals doing "cash in hand" work.Just look how many hand -car wash operations have sprung up in the last year and maybe just a handful of illegals are caught.

It's funny how I was supposed to have incorrectly judged your attitude from your initial statement for you only to go and highlight exactly what your real attitude is.

It's a pointless argument anyway...these things need policing and long may that continue! Anytime someone is found guilty of breaking the law they get what they deserve.

I expect most of the people serving prison sentences would share your views...they'd like to get back to robbing defenseless people on the streets. I suppose the cost of tracking these criminals down would far outweigh the cost of just handing over the cash stolen.

The border agencies are the same as police, they do the job and the courts decide on the punishment, however there is no point giving too big a fine as it won't be paid, for example, how much does it cost to have a helicopter and several police car's chasing after some un-employed scroat in a stolen car, and how many giro's would he need to pay back the cost, it woiuld never happen
Please give your idea of civilised. I pay my tax, I don't break the law, I don't employ illegal immigrants. Why should I be any more civalised? Are you sure you understand the question?
I see, being rude to other blogers is o.k. if you pay your taxes. You don't have to be rude just because you don't agree or close you mind to what others are saying. I won't be back so say what you like now

noodle tosser..car washer...not with all our qualifications..fish batterer..spud scraper maybe.
ps..please dont go....missing you already.

The border agency could never catch all the potential culprits.

The whole point is that the punsihment should be severe enough to act as a deterrent.

Punitive fines, imprisonment and closing of businesses.
