Immigration law: Immigration Bill could see police seize illegal foreign workers' wages

The Immigration Bill will include a new criminal offence of illegal working, empowering the police to seize the wages of illegal foreign workers, the BBC reports.

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has announced details of the Immigration Bill, which proposes a new criminal offence of illegal foreign working.

In legislation that the prime minister promises will make "Britain a less attractive place to come and work illegally," the police will be allowed to seize the wages of illegal foreign workers as proceeds of crime.

Criminal law: Victims of disability hate crime still being 'failed'

A report has found that victims of disability hate crime are still being let down by the criminal justice system despite changes ordered by a previous inquiry, the BBC reports.

A combined report of HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) and HM Inspectorate of Probation (HMIP) has found that victims of disability hate crime continue to be 'failed' by police, prosecutors and the probation service.

Despite a 2013 investigation, which ordered improvement in the way criminal justice agencies assist disability hate crime victims coupled with increased incident reporting, the report states that none of these changes have been fully complied with.
