Baroness Scotland Says There Was A Second Passport.

Recommended Posts

Oh dear, oh dear.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics...ew-inquiry.html

"Tongan Loloahi Tapui-Zivancevic has also claimed she was not asked to produce any immigration documents and that her passport contained a forged visa which was out of date.

Baroness Scotland, however, has insisted that Ms Tapui had shown her a passport, and suggested that there was a mystery "second passport" involved in the scandal.

Last night it was reported that UK Border Agency officials found a Tongan passport belonging to Mrs Tapui-Zivancevic when they raided her flat last week, but that a visa it contained, apparently entitling her to work in the UK, had been forged but which was out of date when Baroness Scotland had taken her on.

But the Cabinet Minister was adamant that the passport she saw was not that document, but another – the details of which she could not recall.

Mrs Tapui-Zivancevic insists, however, the passport found in her flat is the only one she possesses and she claimed that she was prepared to take a lie detector test to prove that she is telling the truth.

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, Mrs Tapui-Zivancevic revealed that she was paid just £6 and hour by Lady Scotland – just 27 p above the minimum wage and about £3 an hour below the going rate for housekeeping work in London.

Mrs Tapui-Zivancevic says that she was put to work cleaning Lady Scotland's £2 million home after an interview lasting just 10 minutes and including no questions about her family background.

"She just said to me 'do you want to start work now', and I said yes", the housekeeper revealed.

Mrs Tapui-Zivancevic also disclosed that she was sacked by a terse text message once the scandal of her immigration status was exposed, following a series of phone calls from her aides, belatedly trying to determine exactly what documents the housekeeper had produced at the job interview.

The latest revelations come as her professional body was urged to launch a highly embarrassing investigation into her conduct.

The Sunday Telegraph can reveal that the Bar Standards Board has received a number of complaints about the beleaguered Cabinet minister, who was fined £5,000 for employing an illegal immigrant.

The development further intensifies pressure on Lady Scotland to step down amid growing concern within Labour that the affair will dominate this week's party conference.

Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, has been accused of showing weakness by failing to sack Lady Scotland, who said in interviews last week that her breach of immigration law could be compared with failing to pay London's congestion charge.

The most senior law officer in England and Wales avoided the sack despite becoming the first individual in the country to be sanctioned for breaching immigration rules that she helped frame as a Home Office minister. All other prosecutions have covered companies.

The Bar Standards Board does not normally investigate complaints about a lawyer's private life, but its own guidelines acknowledge that such an inquiry may be launched in "exceptional circumstances".

A spokeswoman for the board declined to comment about Lady Scotland's case and refused to disclose how many complaints had been received.

Senior legal sources have told this newspaper that the Bar Standards Board would have no alternative but to carry out an inquiry into whether the QC breached the barristers' code of conduct and brought the legal profession into disrepute.

The board was created just three years ago as part of the Bar's attempt to retain its self-regulating role, and failing to act could leave the organisation open to criticism, said lawyers.

"I have no doubt that the Bar Standards Board will deal with this properly and take appropriate action," said one QC.

Members of the disciplinary panel may now have to consider whether Lady Scotland's activities have been "dishonest or otherwise discreditable to a barrister".

The board has the power to disbar a lawyer who is found to have committed a serious breach of the code. Even if a lesser punishment is imposed – such as a fine, suspension or reprimand – it could be fatal to Lady Scotland's political career.

Any inquiry is likely to focus on whether the legal profession has been tarnished by Lady Scotland's breach of immigration laws and the imposition of a £5,000 fine, but Lady Scotland could face even more difficult questions if her version of events differs from the account given by Ms Tapui.

David Davies, the Conservative MP for Monmouth, was among those who asked the Bar Standards Board to examine the case.

Mr Davies said: "If Gordon Brown cannot bring himself to discipline her then the Bar Standards Board should look into whether she has breached her professional code.

"I would have thought that Lady Scotland has obviously brought discredit on to barristers through all this."

Mrs Tapui-ZivancevicTapui married Alexander Zivancevic in May 2007 at a church in west London. Immigration rules require non-EU citizens to obtain Home Office permission before marrying in Britain, but Church of England weddings are exempt from the rules.

The couple were detained by immigration officials last week and released on bail until next month. "

Baroness Scotland is a lying kunt. Let's all have a mass report-in to the Bar Standards Council. New Labour scum.

I'm quite tempted to go to Ladborokes and see what odds I can get on her not being there by the end of the week. Could be 20 quid well invested.

So let's get this straight - she forged an out-of-date visa?!

Not quite as good as the American criminals who tried to rob a bank by tunnelling under its vault, got their calculations wrong and came up in the delicatessen next door, but definitely a close second.

It seems Baroness Scotland is to be let off the £170000 expense claim fiddle. It seems she's still trying to wriggle out of employing an illegal. This is the Attorney General of the Once-United (now with added Sharia) Kingdom. How about her judgements in her AG post? Could it be she's also a friend of murderers??

Baroness Scotland Refuses to Increase Sentencing for Child Killers & Torturers

Baroness Scotland, the first female Attorney General, created anger with the public after suggesting that the sentences given to the killers & torturers of Baby P were just, and not lenient. One petition signed by 115,000 people called for longer sentences.

Police call double murder’s sentence too lenient

POLICE have asked the country’s top lawyer for permission to appeal against the 34-year jail sentence handed down to “barbaric†killer Mohammed Ali – for being too lenient

BEN KINSELLA MURDER - SENTENCES NOT TO BE REFERRED AS UNDULY LENIENT

The Attorney General, Baroness Scotland QC, has decided that she should not refer the sentences imposed on Jade Braithwaite, Michael Alleyne and Juress Kika to the Court of Appeal as possibly unduly lenient.

Explaining her decision, Baroness Scotland said:

“This is an appalling and horrendous case, involving a young man, Ben Kinsella, whose life was ended tragically early. His family deserve our utmost sympathy.

“As Attorney General I have the power to refer sentences to the Court of Appeal if they appear to me to be unduly lenient. The test I apply when deciding if a sentence may be unduly lenient is whether it falls outside the range of sentence that a judge could reasonably pass.

“It seems clear to me that the judge, who had heard all the evidence, fully appreciated the seriousness of this terrible offence and took into account all the relevant factors, including the evidence from the Kinsella family as to the impact Ben's murder has had on them when sentencing the offenders.

“I believe these sentences cannot be said to fall outside the proper range and that therefore there is no prospect that the Court of Appeal would increase them if there were referred.â€

Alleyne, Braithwaite and Kirka were sentenced to life imprisonment with a recommendation that they service a minimum tariff of 19 years each. These sentences mean that these offenders will only be released from prison if and when the Parole Board are satisfied that they no longer present a risk to the public. Whether that day ever comes will depend on a careful assessment of risk, and Ben’s relatives will be able to make representations about that calculation of risk to the Parole Board before they conclude their assessment.

Jack Straw says "sexism" is behind the story of the Attorney General breaking her own law and employing an illegal immigrant... Well I guess he would have preferred to use the magical "R" word, but I guess he realises he would be calling 90% of the country "racist" :lol:

In an interview with the Financial Times, Mr Straw said the media would never have called for her resignation after the Attorney General was fined for employing an illegal immigrant as a housekeeper, if she were a man.

How many more months must we put up with these clowns ??? :angry:
