An immigration judge who had an affair with his illegally employed "chilli hot stuff" cleaner has been paid nearly £300,000 even though he has been off work for the last two-and-a-half years.Nice
After the trial concluded the Office for Judicial Complaints launched a 19-month inquiry into Judge Khan's conduct, headed by Lord Phillips.Well, of course! I mean, it’s not like that sort of thing brings immigration judges into disrepute, is it?
When the disciplinary report was published last May it concluded that no further action should be taken against Judge Khan, as employing an illegal immigrant was not strong enough grounds to sack him.
Well, not that much more disrepute than any of their other actions in their day job, anyway.
And nineteen months to investigate! If he’d got her pregnant, the kid would literally have been celebrating it’s first birthday by the time the verdict came in. That’s utterly unacceptable.
Judge Khan went on sick leave as soon as the inquiry concluded, being paid his full annual salary of £111,155.You’re now looking at it? A full year later?
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said the case was being "urgently reviewed".
The spokesman said: "Judge Khan has remained on full salary since sick leave began in May 2008 and we are now looking at this case."
Don’t rush, will you? You might strain something…
