Guernsey petty criminals 'may be deported'

Post by GD on Wed 30 Jan 2013, 6:12 pm

Repeat offenders of low level crimes in Guernsey could face deportation, the head of law enforcement has said.

Currently non-British citizens convicted of serious offences in the Bailiwick risk being deported.

Patrick Rice said this policy was being extended to include those who persistently commit lower-level offences.

He said these included shoplifting, being found drunk and disorderly and various traffic offences.

Deportation is the process used to compulsorily remove non-British citizens from the Bailiwick.

They an be prohibited from returning for as long as the deportation order remains in force.

Mr Rice said: "The vast majority of those non-British citizens coming to the island are law-abiding and make a valuable contribution to life in the Bailiwick.

"However, those who consistently failed to comply with the law will be pursued with energy and determination, with the courts being asked to consider making recommendations for deportation in appropriate cases."

Mr Rice said when a court was considering recommending deportation it would take into account the European Convention on Human Rights.

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
