Shamsu Iqbal is a good soldier of the hijrah, the mass Muslim migration into the UK for the purposes of dawah, jihad, and ultimate conquest, and it is unlikely that he will get anything more than a tap on the wrist from the May government, which lets jihad preachers stream into the country while banning me and other freedom fighters. Meanwhile, the damage Shamsu Iqbal has done is irreversible: the Home Office has no idea how many people he let in, and where all of them are. Some of them could be jihad terrorists. Britain is finished.
“Home Office official was the ringleader of £6million conspiracy which allowed 437 illegal immigrants into Britain,” by Christian Gysin, Daily Mail, April 4, 2018:
A Home Office official was at the centre of a £6million conspiracy which allowed hundreds of illegal immigrants into the country.
Shamsu Iqbal, 61, was the lynchpin of a gang which exploited his ‘trusted’ position to falsify records for at least 437 people.
Yesterday all four men involved in the scam were found guilty following a trial and will now be sentenced at a hearing next week.
They face a maximum sentence of 14 years in jail.
The potential loss to the taxpayer was assessed by Home Office statisticians as £56million, based on the amount the 437 illegal immigrants could have falsely claimed in benefits over the six years of the fraud.
However, exactly how many immigrants were given ‘ghost’ identities may never be known.
The conspiracy netted the gang themselves more than £6.18million, with much of the money spirited back to Pakistan, Bangladesh and Dubai, where the criminals have strong links.
When ringleader Iqbal was arrested investigators found bank accounts containing more than £1million in cash.
His job at the Home Office would have earned him around £23,000 a year.
Iqbal and his three co-conspirators would split the £14,000 fee they charged to the illegal immigrants they helped.
Prosecutors explained how Iqbal would access Home Office records of migrants who had been granted the right to stay in Britain and swap them for details of imposters.
Investigators with the Home Office’s Anti-Corruption Unit spent three years identifying at least 437 cases of documents being faked.
The ‘ghost’ imposter would get a new identity of a real migrant who had been given either ‘leave to remain’ or ‘no time limit’ status to stay in Britain.
A senior Home Office source told the Mail: ‘The bottom line is that we may never know the true number of people this gang helped stay in the country.
‘There could be literally hundreds more on their books that we simply haven’t found.
‘The deception that has been allowed to go on for years is highly embarrassing to the Home Office.
‘Some of those given new identities could even be potential terrorists. Many of them have simply melted away meaning we will never trace them.’…
