UK's Home Office to probe visa-for-sex report

“以簽證換取性” 英國內政部展開調查

UK's Home Office to probe visa-for-sex report

Britain's interior ministry has launched an investigation into a report that some immigration officers gave favorable treatment to attractive and compliant women, the Sun newspaper reported yesterday.

英國太陽報昨日報導,有些移民局官員讓漂亮且順從的女性享有特殊待遇,對此,英國內政部已經開始展開調查。

The tabloid paper's report was based on the account of a former immigration officer, who worked at the headquarters in the London suburb of Croydon.

該報報導是根據已離職的前移民局官員。他先前於倫敦郊區克羅伊登的總部工作。

Anthony Pamnani, 23, said he had left the service four years ago disgusted at the behavior of some colleagues.

二十三歲的安東尼.帕姆那尼,四年前由於無法忍受某些同事的做法而辭職。

“One girl came in and told us an admin officer had visited her flat and they had slept together. She got indefinite leave to stay,”he told the paper.

他向報社透露:「一名女子告訴我們,一位行政官員曾到她的住所與她發生性關係,她隨即拿到永久居留權。」

Brazilian women received visas for longer stays than their male companions, without valid reason, he added.

他補充道,巴西籍的女性比男性拿到更久的延期簽證,毫無任何正當理由可言。

According to Pamnani, basic security controls were often sidestepped.“In many cases”the passports of immigration-hopefuls were only examined to ensure their holders were not convicts or sought by their home authorities.

據帕姆那尼表示,安全控管人員通常都不負責任,許多申請案例中,通常只須檢查移民者的護照以確保他們不是罪犯或被國家通緝。

“It was lazy because they only had to walk a few yards and swipe it through a computer reader,”commented Pamnani.

帕姆那尼批評:「他們真的很懶,他們只須走幾步路,讓電腦刷過護照即可。」

Home Office Minister for immigration Tony McNulty promised the claims would be looked at.

英國內政部移民大臣東尼.麥納堤承諾絕對會調查此事。

“Until the outcome of that investigation is known, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further but clearly I will not condone this type of behavior amongst staff.”

「調查結果出來之前,我不便進一步評論,但無疑地,我絕不原諒職員間有這種行為發生。」
