Salih Taib Abdullah, 33, and Ahmed Omar Saleh Khater, 25, were sentenced to a total of two years and two months in prison on Friday, September 8th, 2023. They were found guilty of attempting to enter the UK illegally on a small boat, along with 51 other migrants. During this attempt, they assaulted French officers and were subsequently arrested.

The incident occurred on a French beach in June 2023 and was reported by GOV.Uk. Thanks to the swift action of British and French authorities, justice was served promptly.

An incident occurred on the shores of Oye Plage near Calais where a team of UK-funded gendarmes were patrolling. They found a group of migrants trying to launch a small boat to make their way illegally to the UK.

When the gendarmes approached the migrants to stop them from crossing, chaos broke out. The migrants attacked the officers with makeshift weapons and rocks, causing injuries. They then fled on the small boat towards the UK.

The British and French authorities worked together to bring the offenders to justice. Abdullah from Iraq and Khater from Sudan, two of the attackers, were identified and arrested by officers from the Home Office’s Criminal and Financial Investigations (CFI) unit as soon as they arrived in Dover. They pleaded guilty to attempting to enter the UK without valid entry clearance. Abdullah was sentenced to 14 months in prison, while Khater was sentenced to 12 months.

This case highlights the challenges that authorities face in addressing illegal immigration and the potential for violence that accompanies such incidents. It also emphasizes the importance of international collaboration in tackling these complex issues.
