Arrested three times in UK

HAVING read (Jan 7) of the 'Asylum bid fraudster' I am puzzled as to how this abscondee managed to marry here. Are there no thorough checks on a person's background and eligibility to marry?

Also, while in England, he has been arrested three times for criminal activities (using a false name) and has appeared in Sheffield Crown Court. How then is he suitable, or even eligible, for an interpreting job, as proposed? Surely, any potential employee for such a post should undergo Criminal Records Bureau checks.

As for his wife having to claim benefits if he was removed from the country? A great many law-abiding people have to exist that way, through no fault of their own.
