John Lloyd-Jones QC & Kathryn Howarth, after seven week trial, successfully prosecute large-scale conspiracies to supply illegal workers to the construction industry.
John Lloyd-Jones QC & Kathryn Howarth (instructed on behalf of CPS East Midlands Complex Casework Unit) have successfully prosecuted three family members for their involvement in conspiracies to Assist Unlawful Immigration. The case focused on the provision, through a series of family run businesses based in Derby, of illegal workers to contractors working on major construction projects across the country between 2004 and 2014. 65% of the workers provided had no entitlement to either work or be in the United Kingdom. HHJ Burgess, observing that deterrent sentences were required, passed sentences of seven and a half years, five years and five years on Mandeep Singh Rai, Baljit Singh Rai and Daljit Singh Rai.
