Illegal migrant had Parliament job


Recommended Posts

An illegal Brazilian immigrant who disappeared in 2004 worked as a cleaner inside the Houses of Parliament for nearly two months, it has emerged.


Elaine Chaves Aparecida, 31, was only caught last week as she tried to gain access using someone else's security pass.


The latest highly-embarrassing lapse to hit the Government is revealed in a confidential memo to Home Office minister Liam Byrne that was leaked to the Sunday Telegraph. And the document advises ministers to keep quiet about the incident unless asked by the media "given recent coverage of security guards employed illegally at Government offices".


I wonder how many are working in Washington!
