You Have Rights To Recover Monies Spent On Illegal Entry Or Attempted Foreign Trips

You Have Rights To Recover Monies Spent On Illegal Entry Or Attempted Foreign Trips. Daily Law Tips (Tip 482) by Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK) 

First of all, helping, assisting or playing any role knowingly for illegal entry of any person into any country of which the person entering or attempting to enter is not a resident or citizen, is a crime.

It is a crime where such conduct of procuring illegal entry is done knowingly and for a financial/material benefit, directly or indirectly. This also includes facilitating or promoting actual or attempted illegal entry into, transit across or stay in a country where the person entering or attempting to enter is not a citizen or resident. Illegal entry is crossing borders without the necessary requirements for legal entry into the receiving country.

This offence is punishable with imprisonment for not less than 5 years without an option of fine.

Aside the punishment of imprisonment for not less than 5 years without an option of fine, the law mandates offenders to refund all monies fraudulently obtained from their victims.
