Stevenson Comments On Arrest Of Foreign Criminal

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has today (Thursday) welcomed the news today that a foreign criminal living in Scotland, who should have been considered for deportation after prison release, has been arrested in the Aberdeenshire area.

The news follows the revelations that the London Home Office made no attempt to warn their colleagues in Edinburgh that dangerous criminals, who should have been deported, had been allowed to stay in the country.

Speaking from his Scottish Parliament Office, Mr Stevenson said:

“I congratulate Grampian Police on making a rapid arrest so soon after being notified of this person’s presence in our area.

“This illustrates how vital it is that local police forces such as Grampian and the North Aberdeenshire Command are kept fully informed of any risks on their patch and also the importance of ensuring that we have adequate police resources on the ground.”
