R v Mehtab

Immigration – Offence. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, allowed the defendant's appeal against his conviction for conspiracy to facilitate breaches of United Kingdom immigration law, contrary to s 1(1) of the Criminal Law Act 1977, in circumstances where, whatever the circumstances of his own marriage, there had been insufficient evidence to establish his involvement in a wider conspiracy to organise sham marriages and the judge had erred in refusing to accept a submission of no case to answer.
