Essex Visa Fraud Charges Dropped
Charges against a woman accused of conspiring with an Essex man to falsely issue visas to immigrants have been dropped.
Violet Savizon had been accused of the fraud along with fellow immigration officer Samuel Shoyeju, who has already admitted misconduct in public office by falsely granting indefinite leave to remain to non-EU residents.
At Basildon Crown Court, prosecutor Lucy Kennedy asked Judge Christopher Mitchell to instruct not guilty verdicts on counts of conspiracy and facilitating in issuing false visas to non-EU residents and misconduct in public office.
The charges centred upon the fact Shoyeju used Savizon's date stamp to authorise the visas. Ms Kennedy said Shoyeju has now indicated that he did this without Savizon's knowledge.
Shoyeju, 53, of Namur Road, Canvey Island, worked for the UK Border Agency in Croydon at the time of the offences in 2008.
Judge Christopher Mitchell remanded Shoyeju in custody and warned him he faces a "significant custodial sentence".
Savizon, 47, from Buckingham Avenue, Thornton Heath, did not comment as she left court.
Shoyeju will be sentenced on November 25th.
Clacton MP Douglas Carswell has announced that he will not be seeking re-election on June 8 but will be backing the Conservative candidate.
A man has been jailed for life to serve a minimum of 25 years for murdering an uncle as he attempted to protect his niece from unwanted advances in Basildon.
