Illegal worker jailed 22 months

03 March 2024

 

The defendant was arrested on the same day that 24 Vietnamese  illegal immigrants were deported

A Vietnamese man holding a recognizance form was jailed for 22 months and two months after trial at Shatin Court on Thursday, on a charge of illegal work.

The 45-year-old defendant was arrested during a raid by Immigration officers on a restaurant in Tai Po in November last year.

When his identity was checked, he produced a recognisance form which prohibits him from taking employment. Further investigation revealed that he was a non-refoulement claimant.

The Immigration Ordinance expressly prohibits any person who is the subject of a removal or deportation order, an overstayer or one who was refused permission to land, from taking any employment, whether paid or unpaid, or setting up, or joining a business.
