A self-styled legal practitioner has been jailed after being convicted of providing illegal immigration advice. He pleaded guilty to 11 charges of providing unregulated immigration advice.

The sentence Judge said: “Public interest in such matters is obvious, given the desperate circumstances of those seeking immigration advice. The consequences of immigration proceedings are hugely important and in most cases dealing with complex matters. It is right that people who charge for such services must be qualified.”

Deputy immigration services commissioner, Ian Leigh, said “We have clear standards outlining what we expect in terms of the fitrness and competence of regulated advisors.”
