Customs and Immigration refuse entry to a man deported from the UK

29 August 2018

A man who arrived in Jersey after stowing away on the Victor Hugo from Granville has been returned to France and handed over to the French authorities.

The man was questioned on the Albert Quay by officers from the Customs and Immigration Service when he arrived yesterday morning.

It transpired that he was a 35-year old Turkish national who had been deported from the UK in 2015 for serious drugs offences. He was trying to use Jersey as a transit point to get back to the UK.

He was refused entry into Jersey on the basis that he is subject to a current deportation order. He was returned to Granville on the evening sailing yesterday.
