I think it is wrong because he obstructed enquiries to establish his country of origin so that he could avoid deportation. He had used at least five aliases and claimed to be British, Italian, Moroccan, Algerian and stateless. Therefore to my mind he was only held in custody because he wouldn't state his country of origin.
He seems to have got compensation for misleading the enquiries.
So it does pay to be a criminal.No doubt he will be on the phone to relatives and friends saying paradise is england.
The idea that someone has been given carte blanche by the law to continue ignoring the laws of the land and indeed get paid pretty much 2 thirds of my annual working wage for doing so shows how belittled this country has become.
Now that a precedent has been set the industry now has a sure fire means of bypassing any regulations pertaining to their removal.
Do not reveal your identity or origin,all of those who are being remanded pending deportation proceedings must be kicking themselves.
