An illegal immigrant was smuggled into Britain - in a suitcase.
Axar.az reports citing The Sun.
The Iraqi was found in people-trafficker Dashti Abdulrahman’s car.
Abdulrahman was stopped while trying to board the Channel Tunnel train by French officials.
The people-trafficker got two years’ jail at Canterbury crown court.
Assistant Director David Fairclough, from the Immigration Enforcement Criminal and Financial Investigation team, said: “Abdulrahman offered no explanation, neither during interview, nor in court, for his actions.
“But whatever his motive, there is no excuse for such a breach of the UK’s immigration laws.
“The sentences handed out should serve as a warning to anyone tempted to get involved in this kind of criminality. We will catch you and put you before the courts.”
The 42-year-old was caught out on November 5 last year, and sentenced to two years at Canterbury Crown Court on Friday.
