DOZENS of foreign beauty workers have been arrested across Scotland in a Home Office crackdown on illegal immigration.
A total of 26 foreign nationals were arrested for a variety of immigration offences when officers swooped on nail bars across the Central Belt on Friday.
Nearly all of the offenders were of Vietnamese nationality, with the exception of one woman from Nepal who was working in an Edinburgh salon.
A 26-year-old woman found working illegally in Strathaven and a 24-year-old man arrested in Glasgow, both from Vietnam, have been detained as steps are taken to deport them.
The rest were released and ordered to report to the Home Office as their cases are considered.
Another 39-year-old Vietnamese man arrested in Livingston has also been passed on to police as part of ongoing criminal investigations.
The arrests could see the employers being hit by fines of up to £20,000 for each worker arrested, unless they can demonstrate that proper checks were carried out on passports and other documents proving a foreigner’s right to work in the UK.
