WITNEY: Three men have been arrested for immigration offences after a raid on restaurant Raj.
Officers visited the High Street restaurant at 6.15pm last Wednesday.
A 27-year-old was held for overstaying his visa, a 31-year-old for illegally entering the country and a 60-year-old for working in breach of his visa conditions.
They have been taken to a detention facility pending removal from the UK.
Another man, aged 27, was found to have entered the country illegally but has an outstanding application to the Home Office which has yet to be decided.
Unless Raj can prove that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out, the company could be fined £10,000 per illegal worker.
