Why Wasn't He Handed A Plane Ticket Back To Albania?

Following the police raid, it was estimated the street value of the drugs was anywhere between £88,000 and £266,000.
Hoxhaj made full admissions to the police and said he had been at the property for around two months prior to the raid. He admitted one count of producing cannabis.

Bang to rights! 

Mitigating, Shazia Malik highlighted that there had been a delay in the raid and court appearance but he had not offended again and had found himself stable accommodation. Ms Malik said there was an “element of exploitation” and he previously worked 14 hours a day in the car wash, earning just £13.
She added: “He is unable to return to Albania due to fears of the reprisals of the debts.”

Any actual proof of this? Did the court request any? 

Hoxhaj was handed a suspended 16 month sentence, 200 hours unpaid work and 30 days rehabilitation.

*sighs* What sort of idiot judge wou...

Oh. Of course: 

Judge Samantha Leigh told Hoxhaj: “You were working in a car wash in dismal conditions, you were offered an opportunity to earn more and have somewhere to stay.
“You were also receiving threats back in Albania made to your family to pay off a debt.”

Was he, Samantha? Was he really?

Julia, you bring up these sorts of cases time and again, always the same few "judges" involved. Is there no one to have a quiet word in their ears? Just to say bang 'em up or sling 'em out. All this goes on while granny gets a fine for sharing a KitKat on a park bench with her friend.

He should of course have been deported. He was probably lieing re threats anyway.

It seems they aren't subject to the same oversight as any normal worker. And that's all they are, just workers.

"He was probably lieing re threats anyway."

Like the sudden discovery that he's gay, had he been a Nigerian or Ghanarian?
