In the UK, illegal immigrants, in addition to being expelled from the country, still face a six-month prison sentence. The British government now wants to increase sentences to four years in prison, further tightening the punishment for trafficking in persons, from a maximum of 14 years to life in prison, in a law due Tuesday. For conservatives, imposing tough measures against immigration is a fulfillment of a campaign promise, for Amnesty International it is a violation of the human rights of desperate people.

According to British Home Secretary Prity Patel, the goal of the new law will be “to rebuild the broken asylum system in the UK,” promising that the new approach to immigration will be “solid but fair.” Provisions of the new law include measures to intercept fragile rubber boats that sometimes try to cross the English Channel, capture men and women there, take them ashore and then hold them accountable – no, it is clear what will happen to the children who go on. government, often the children of these immigrants facing imprisonment.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.
