Braintree district: Arrested Indian restaurant workers still in the UK
2:00pm Sunday 13th January 2013 in News
Two Indian restaurant workers remain in the UK a month after immigration officers arrested them.
The two men, aged 22 and 39, were arrested in a raid on Lakeview Indian Restaurant, in Church Road, Gosfield, on December 4.
UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers, acting on intelligence, discovered the two members of staff were immigration offenders from Bangladesh.
The 22-year-old was found to be working in breach of his visa conditions, and the 39-year-old had overstayed his visa.
A UKBA spokesman said: “The two men arrested at Lakeview Indian Restaurant remain in the UK while their cases are worked on.
“The UK Border Agency works hard to track down immigration offenders and return them to their home countries.”
