This was a brilliant plan to get rid of an unwanted wife. It was foiled when the man got a promotion and it was discovered during the vetting process.
(MailOnline)- An immigration officer tried to rid himself of his wife by adding her name to a list of terrorist suspects.If my wife is reading this, she shouldn't worry. Homeland Security turned down my job application. J/K
He used his access to security databases to include his wife on a watch list of people banned from boarding flights into Britain because their presence in the country is 'not conducive to the public good'.
As a result the woman was unable for three years to return from Pakistan after travelling to the county to visit family.
The tampering went undetected until the immigration officer was selected for promotion and his wife name was found on the suspects' list during a vetting inquiry.
The Home Office confirmed today that the officer has been sacked for gross misconduct.
