Zim immigrant banned from nursing practice in Scotland

GLASGOW, Scotland - A Zimbabwean immigrant who was banned from working was employed as a nurse by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde for three years.

Doreen Mutasa was refused leave to remain in the UK in 2004 and was granted temporary leave in 2010 on the condition that she did not work.

However, the 31-year-old worked as a nurse at the city's Stobhill Hospital in 2011. An investigation by the UK Border Agency discovered that she had a false UK residence permit.

Mutasa, who lives with her sister in Paisley, Renfrewshire, pled guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to possessing the false document between May 1 and 31, 2011.

On Monday, Sheriff John Baird told Mutasa that in the circumstances he was not going to send her to prison and instead ordered her to carry out 160 hours unpaid work within six months.

The court heard Mutasa came to the UK from Zimbabwe in January 2001 and was granted a visa.

Fiscal depute Adam Roberts, prosecuting, told the court the document expired in July 2001 but Mutasa stayed in the UK.

He said: "In 2004 she made contact with the Home Office and lodged a postal application for leave to remain, however this was refused. In 2010 she again contacted the Home Office and lodged a further application for leave to remain."

The court heard there was a condition that she should not work. Mr Roberts added: "At no time was the accused granted a residence permit to stay in the UK.

"Not withstanding her immigration status, the accused was employed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde between December 2008 and March 2012 as a nurse."




Solicitor advocate Billy Lavelle, defending, told the court Mutasa was going to return to South Africa to study but her father phoned and said it was too dangerous. Mutasa went to the University of Buckingham where she studied to be a nurse and qualified as a psychiatric nurse.

After being refused leave, she obtained false documents to allow her to work. He said: "She did not enter the country under false documentation, she was to an extent the victim of circumstances, she has not come before the courts for any other offences."
