More Madness

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

More proof, if proof were needed, of the ludicrous situation the legal system finds itself in.

An illegal immigrant has been jailed for 9 months for failing to comply with a removal order which should have seen him returning to Georgia, that’s as in ex-Soviet, not American state.

Shamil Shakirar does not fit the criteria for automatic deportation (including having been jailed) so he could only be deported by a removal order which, amazingly, requires his signature. He refused to sign the document so has been jailed for failing to comply with the removal order.

A Home Office spokesman said they would seek his removal on his release from prison.

So someone who has no right to remain in this country can only be removed if he agrees to go? The country really has gone mad.

How much does it cost to keep someone in prison for a week again?
