Man, 37, to be deported as part of week of action

A 37-year-old man is due to be deported to his home country of Romania after he was found to be living in Corby in breach of his notification requirements.

Ionut Vasiliu, previously of Hazelwood Road, Corby, was arrested on Wednesday (August 17), following a joint operation between Northamptonshire Police and officers from the Immigration Service.

Vasiliu was convicted in Romania in 2006 for sex offences and is therefore under the same strict controls as a Registered Sex Offender who offended in this country.

However, as part of the operation yesterday, Vasiliu was found to be living in Bonnington Walk, Corby, an address he had not notified police of.

He was arrested in connection with the breach, accepted a community resolution which was offered to ensure the case progressed as quickly as possible, and detained by the Immigration Service for deportation.

Detective Chief Inspector Liz Wilcox, said: “As part of this week of action, we have not just been targeting people through traditional warrants and enforcement activity, but have also been working with our partners, like the Immigration Service, to identify people breaking the law and to bring them to justice.

“Vasiliu was breaching his requirements by not having notified us about his change in address and so I am glad that this operation uncovered that and ensured he will no longer be walking the streets of Northamptonshire as a result.”
