- British Prime Minister says her government will from now on make it unbearable for illegal migrants to live in Britain
The British government is considering plans to freeze the bank accounts of all Ghanaians living illegally in the country.
What this means is that all Ghanaians and other persons living illegally in Britain would from January, 2018 see their bank accounts frozen following a new directive by the UK Government to weed out illegal immigrants.
British Prime Minister, Theresa May has revealed that this radical plan is aimed at setting up a “hostile environment” for the thousands of illegal migrants living in the country.
Meanwhile, the development has seen banking consultant, Nana Otuo Acheampong warns all Ghanaians who would be affected by this radical move to as a matter of urgency close or transfer all their accounts immediately or risk losing all their funds.
“Well to be fore warned is to be for armed now you’ve got until January, If you know that you do not have legal basis to be there then the best thing is to either close the account now or transfer it out to ensure that by January there nothing, in their account because they are going to freeze their accounts. Meanwhile, the foreign affairs minister is yet to respond to these threats from Britain.
