Illegal immigrant who had fake ID is spared jail

 AN ILLEGAL immigrant who was caught with two forged passports has been jailed for nine months.

But Yusuf Malik has already been freed after serving just 16 days behind bars on remand – because he had been on a curfew for 10 months.

And the sentence is not long enough for the 30-year-old to be considered for automatic deportation which takes place following a sentence of one year or longer.

Malik, who says he came to Swindon in December 2006 on a six-month visitor’s visa though the authorities claim they can find no trace of him arriving, was arrested in February last year by police investigating other matters.
