THREE men have been arrested after a Home Office immigration raid in Prestatyn.

On Wednesday,  February 19, at 7pm officers visited The Suhail Tandoori restaurant on Bastion Road, Prestatyn, and arrested three Bangladeshi men found working illegally.

A 29-year-old man who was arrested for overstaying his visa is currently in detention at St Asaph police station while further enquiries are carried out.
Two further Bangladeshi men, who were found to have no right to work in the UK, were later temporarily released while their cases are considered.

If the pair, aged 28 and 38, are found they have no right to be in the UK they will face removal.

The Suhail Tandoori was served a notice warning that they face civil penalties of up to £10,000 per illegal worker employed.

The penalty will be imposed unless proof is provided by the employers that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out.

Richard Johnson, from the Wales Home Office Immigration Enforcement team, said:“We carry out frequent operations across Wales targeting immigration offenders wherever they are.

“Our officers are working hard to track down people breaking immigration laws and remove them from the country.

“The public are a huge help in our work and I would urge people with information about suspected immigration abuse to contact us directly.”
