Following the execution of a search at a restaurant in St Helier, Jersey Customs and Immigration Service officers arrested an illegal immigrant.
The illegal immigrant is a 27 year-old Bangladeshi man, who travelled to the Island earlier this year from the UK, where he had previously been living illegally.

Subsequent to his arrest, the man has claimed asylum and is currently being held at La Moye Prison.

JCIS investigations into this matter are ongoing and, for the time being, there will be no further comment regarding this case.​
