Details of the Incident

The accused, a Home Office employee positioned as an asylum decision-maker in Northern England, reportedly targeted a vulnerable asylum seeker from Northern Ireland. Identified only as Renas, the seeker was allegedly approached with an offer to secure his refugee status in exchange for money. Renas described receiving a threatening call suggesting that without payment, his application would almost certainly be denied, with the worker claiming, “95 per cent of people like you” face rejection.
