Sentence Deportation. Where the defendant was charged with making a false representation for financial gain and using a false instrument when he had sought to rely on a false passport to prove his eligibility to work in the United Kingdom, the judge had not taken into account that that passport had not been used as a basis for his entry and stay in the UK nor the facts that he had spent six years in the UK without having committed any offences, that he had a heavily pregnant partner and a daughter, and that he had maintained contact with the Home Office throughout the time of his stay in the UK, before he made a recommendation for the defendant's deportation. Accordingly, the recommendation was quashed.
