Former UKBA Executive Director in Crown Court accused of criminal activity whilst in public office
A former UKBA executive director is in court this week accused of illegally accessing sensitive information about vulnerable immigrants during her time at the UKBA and passing this confidential data to her boyfriend, who is alleged to have used this information to defraud immigrants and posing as a solicitor.
This case at the crown court comes just two weeks after Immigration Minister Mark Harper resigned, as he had employed a cleaner who did not have permission to work in the UK.
The former UKBA executive director who worked in the Case Resolution and Criminal Casework Directorate at the Home Office denies three counts of fraud, three counts of money laundering, two counts of conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office and provision of immigration services while unqualified. The case continues.
