Raja Raid

Raja Raid


A raid at The Raja of Kent restaurant in High Halden, near Tenterden in Kent, has resulted in two workers being detained by immigration authorities.

Acting on intelligence, immigration enforcement officers visited the restaurant on Biddenden Road at about 8pm on Friday, 15th September.

Two Bangladeshi men aged 27 and 28, had overstayed their visas, while a 42-year-old Indian man was found to have entered the UK illegally.

Both Bangladeshi nationals were detained, while steps are taken to remove them from the country. The Indian man must report to immigration enforcement while his case is heard.

The restaurant was served a civil penalty referral notice in relation to illegal workers, which could result in a fine of £20,000 per illegal worker, a potential total of £60,000, if the employer fails to show that appropriate right-to-work document checks were carried out.

Richard Lederle, head of the South East Immigration Enforcement team, said: “Using illegal labour is not victimless crime; it cheats the taxpayer, undercuts honest employers and means legitimate job seekers are denied employment opportunities. It also exploits some of society’s most vulnerable people.”

Whistleblowers with information on suspected immigration abuse can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
