Mr Patel attempted to charge £12,000 for supplying the groom and providing advice; including telling the couple they could ‘pretend they were living together by setting up bank accounts in joint names’.
One comment in the testimonials section of the Yana UK website says that “the individual is one the most genuine advisors. Mr. Jayesh Patel not only pays detailed attention to what you have to say, but also offers you a very honest opinion on how to go about any of the processes and application. It’s not so easy to find honest advisors. The sole aim of Yana is to help people and make sure that they follow the right way. I would not hesitate to recommend Yana, as I have experienced total faith, and positive result oriented work. Thank you”.
The new Immigration Minister, David Green MP said that \”This Government is committed to striking at the heart of illegal immigration and tackling those who break the rules. I have asked for the information gained by Sky News to be provided to the UK Border Agency so that if there is sufficient evidence of a crime having been committed those involved can be brought to book. At the same time I have asked the Immigration Services Commissioner, who regulates immigration advisers, to investigate these alleged breaches. She has assured me that she will investigate these matters fully and take any appropriate action.\”
The new Government will undoubtedly press for the strongest possible actions to be taken against the individual in what is sure to be a clear message to others contemplating facilitating illegal immigration. The new Conservative / Liberal Democrat Coalition Government has already said that it will introduce an Immigration Cap, address perceived holes in the immigration system (i.e. Tier 4 Student) and take a hard line against illegal immigration.
