The Sun Do situated at New Row in Coleraine was visited by immigration enforcement officers on Saturday 27th May. They were acting on intelligence regarding men on the premises who were in the country illegally.
A spokesperson from Home Office said “Two Malaysian men aged 46 and 35 who were in the country illegally and a 43-year-old Chinese man who had overstayed his visit visa were arrested.
“They must now report regularly to Immigration Enforcement while their cases are progressed. “A 59-year-old Chinese man discovered in accommodation above the business was also arrested for overstaying his visa. He is currently detained while steps are taken to remove him from the UK. “The business was served a referral notice in relation to illegal workers.
The notice warns that a financial penalty of up to £20,000 per illegal worker found will be imposed unless the employers can demonstrate that appropriate right-to-work document checks were carried out, such as seeing a passport or Home Office document confirming permission to work. This is a potential total of £60,000.” The Home Office ask that anyone with information about suspected immigration abuse contact www.gov.uk/report-immigration-crime or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
