Illegal Immigration Conviction
Harry Peter Wilson was said to be the kingpin of an illegal immigration syndicate. The syndicate which was based in London, smuggled at least 150 illegal immigrants from Zimbabwe, South Africa and Jamaica into the United Kingdom.
At the time Wilson owned a luxury apartment in Durban, as well as two in Bulawayo and two in London, and issued fake qualifications, visas, identity documents, birth certificates and passports.
In October 2005, the Isleworth Crown Court sentenced Wilson to 38 months in prison for his crimes.
Wilson convinced innocent people that he could lawfully get them a visa and indefinite leave to remain in the UK for £1 200.
The Isleworth Crown Court sentenced him to three years and two months for supplying false information to the Home Office.
Two Sri Lankan principals of the London Schools of Accountancy in Tooting, south London, backed the applications. Arumagan Kanageswaran, 54, and Ponnduri Puvanandaran, 50, wrote letters saying that the applicants had been accepted at their school.
They were jailed for two years and 10 months each.
In forms filled on the immigrants’ behalf, Wilson claimed he provided them with accommodation plus about R5 500 living expenses while they studied accountancy.
In 2003 the trio, who had become British citizens themselves, applied for at least 150 visas.
Not knowing how to make the applications themselves, the victims either contacted Wilson in Zimbabwe or just after their arrival in London.
Wilson, who lived in Penge, southeast London, also touted for business at hotels in both countries.
