Civil Penalty for Clandestine Entrants Reduced by £8,400
A large European haulage firm received a heavy financial penalty after illegal immigrants (clandestine entrants) were found in one of their trucks entering the UK. Following detailed submissions prepared by transport lawyer Simon Clarke, the Border Force was persuaded to reduce the penalty by nearly 70%.
After considering the submissions, the Border Force reduced the penalty on the company by £8,400 – a very large reduction.
