An immigration raid on a Maidenhead nail bar is set to see two men deported and could lead to a fine of more than £100,000.
Enforcement officers from the Home Office were at Hollywood Nails, in Queen Street, yesterday morning where they found five workers who are believed to be in the country illegally.
Two Vietnamese men, aged 23 and 42, were arrested and detained, pending their ‘removal from the country’.
Also found at the store were a 23-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man, also from Vietnam, both believed to have entered the UK illegally, and a 26-year-old Indian woman found to have overstayed her visa, who will all now have to wait for their cases to be assessed.
Officers said a ‘Vietnamese minor’ was also found at the premises and is set to be passed on to social services.
The business is now threatened with a fine of up to £120,000-£20,000 per illegal worker discovered.
This will be imposed unless ‘appropriate right to work document checks’ can be produced.
