» » 3 Illegal Lankan workers arrested in UK

Three illegal workers from Sri Lanka have been arrested following a raid on a garage in Sittingbourne, Kent in England.
Acting on intelligence, officers visited the BP petrol station where they questioned individuals to check if they had the right to be in the UK, Kent News reported.

They arrested two men aged 22 and 33 at the garage and a 30-year-old man at an address on High Street, Milton Regis, used for staff accommodation. All three were found to be working in breach of their visa conditions.

The men were transferred to immigration detention pending their removal from the UK.

The business was served a notice warning that a civil penalty of up to £10,000 per illegal worker will be imposed unless proof is provided that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out.

UK issue travel warning to British nationals visiting SriLanka

The British Foreign Office has warned visitors to Sri Lanka to be mindful of organised and armed gangs known to operate in Sri Lanka who have been responsible for targeted kidnappings and violence.

The Foreign office says while violent crimes against foreigners are infrequent, there have been an increasing number of reports of sexual offences including on minors.

It also says women should take particular care when travelling alone or in small groups, and carry a personal alarm.

Just this week the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka had been summoned by the External Affairs Ministry to seek a clarification on a travel note issued by the US State Department to US citizens visiting Sri Lanka.
