INVERNESS RESTAURANT CLEARED


A RESTAURANT in Inverness will face no further action following an investigation by the UK Border Agency into an illegal worker at the premises. The Indian Ocean could have been hit with a fine of up to £10,000 for employing an illegal worker from Bangladesh, but the manager was the victim of the employee’s mistake. The worker appears to


have breached his student visa by changing location and breaching regulations that as an international student he needed to maintain a certain level of class attendance and make progress on his studies. The Home Office issued a certificate of no liability to the Indian Ocean restaurant following a review of the case. n

LEADERS of the local muslim community have said they want to work with Oldham Council and schools in the area to make sure halal meat served to pupils is authentic. The initiative comes after a number of incidents elsewhere in the country where halal foods have been found to be contaminated with other animal products or mislabelled. Oldham Mosques Council (OMC) — which represents 35 mosques and more than 27,000 Muslims — is asking to visit suppliers to ensure correct


procedures are being followed. A spokesman said: “The OMC on behalf of the Muslim community seeks assurances and transparency about meat products being served in schools across Oldham.” OMC has asked the council


to provide details of quality assurance procedures and checks undertaken by both the supplier and the council. Parents and communities are being asked to raise the issue with schools to ensure that they are taking the issue seriously. n
