Men arrested in Borders restaurant raid
TWO Bangledeshi illegal immigrants were arrested during a raid on a restaurant in the Borders last week.
The Prince of India, in Peebles High Street, was targeted by Home Office Immigration Enforcement officers on Wednesday.
Anyone caught employing workers without the correct documentation can be fined up to £20,000 per worker.
Prince of India manager Abdul Rahim denied the men arrested, aged 34 and 39, were connected to the restaurant and claimed they were only visiting.
Home Office immigration enforcement officer Jan Dennett said: “Illegal working undercuts honest employers, defrauds the public purse and cheats legitimate job hunters out of employment opportunities.
“The message to those who choose to ignore the rules is clear. We will find you and you will face a heavy financial penalty.”
