Stratford woman charged with using fake ID document to get NHS work
A Ghanaian woman has appeared in court charged with using a fake ID document to secure work with the NHS.
Juliet Owusu, 44, of Warton Road, Stratford, appeared at Hatfield Magistrates Court last Tuesday (18 September) charged with two ID fraud offences. She was remanded in custody to return to St Albans Crown Court on October 26.
Owusu is accused of using a Ghanaian passport with a fake indefinite leave to remain stamp to secure employment as a care worker with NHS Professionals and directly with Newham General Hospital.
She was arrested by officers from the UK Border Agency’s Criminal and Financial Investigations Team a week prior after NHS Professionals raised concerns about the validity of the documentation.
Jon Lewis, of the UK Border Agency, said: “Our specialist crime teams of immigration and police officers working together are cracking down on all forms of immigration abuse, whether this is identity theft, document fraud or sham marriages.”
