Sex Offender Seeks Compensation for Deportation Attempt [19th Mar 2012]
A Somalian man who says he was detained illegally by the Border Agency is claiming compensation, despite the fact he is a convicted sex offender. Bashir Barrow is currently living in Bristol where he has been since his released from jail for indecent assault and a number of other offences ten years ago. The government have been trying to send him back to Somalia ever since, but the European Court of Human Rights has stated that to do so would be against his human rights. Mr Barrow is now taking his case to court after a judge found that he had a case. Despite his convictions the judge ruled that his detention around the time of his attempted deportation was probably illegal and should be heard in court. His lawyer stated that his criminal record was not serious and did not require further detention after his release from prison.
A Dublin-based online and phone betting company has been placed into administration this week by the Financial Services Authority after it was found that £13 million was effectively missing. WorldSpreads in being administered by KPMG who say that money should have been kept in segregated accounts was not as much as it should have been due to accounting irregularities. The clients of the company will be eligible for £50,000 compensation payments under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and any further money owed will go through the usual creditors channels. It is thought that any further losses will be born by the shareholders and lenders. In February the company had posted a profits warning and the finance director had resigned. It seems that clients money was being mixed in with company funds and was being used to keep the company afloat. This is illegal.
The clothing designer Karen Millen is claiming compensation of more than £500 million from the Icelandic bank Kaupthing after she lost her business due to the financial crash in the country. Kaupthing was accused to trying to cover up the financial difficulty it was in and of hiding toxic investments. The bank denies these charges. Ms Millen and her business partner had interests in a number of high profile fashion chains in the UK as well as their own fashion line under Ms Millens name. Following the crash in Iceland the couple lost everything due to the fact they had sold a share of their business to a company which had investment from the bank. They believed this investment to be secure due to the balance sheets they had seen. Ms Millen now cannot even use her own name to market her clothing range.
