A certain amount of creativity, you can not deny the two from Bangladesh - born, 33 -, and 40-year-old men, really. Their business model would no doubt be impressive, based on a criminally relevant behavior.
Independently of each other, the two men brokered a total of about twenty country people wishing to marry women, usually from Spain or Portugal. Advantage of these women: they came from an EU country.
So it was not done, of course. Now, you explained to the couples, as you can the easiest way to get married – namely, on the Danish island of Aero. On the local registry office will require hardly any papers. The "view" in mid-December reported.
According to the border guard were married in Denmark in the year 2016, a total of 13'000 couples who do not live in the country. Alone on Aero, the number of marriage of foreigners increased, according to the "gaze" within ten years, from 500 to 4500.
But even so, this was all-inclusive package of the two Bangladeshis not laced finish. It lacked a residence permit for Switzerland. The men organised a Take-away operation of fictitious employment contracts for the mediated "wives". Because with a contract of employment of an EU citizen in Switzerland receive the right to stay. And thus, thanks to the marriage, also the husband of the resident woman.
CHF 5,000 per couple
For their whole package of services – women and the employment contracts to Convey, as well as providing Know-how in dealing with the Swiss authorities in connection with the obtaining of a valid residence title – conceding the two men per completed marriage is 5000 Swiss francs. Ten percent of the Take-away operator received for the issuance of the contract of employment.
deception of the authorities means the offence in the aliens act. Who deceives the authorities by giving false information or withholding essential information and thereby the granting of an authorisation obtains, must reckon with a prison sentence of up to five years, if he is in the intention of enriching himself so unlawfully.
this is Exactly what the Prosecutor's office accused the two men, also: The employment contracts were fictitious, and the marriages existed only on paper. In a so-called abbreviated procedure, the men of two different departments of the district court of Zurich sentenced to a conditional sentence of imprisonment of 14 months and a conditional fine of 120 daily rates à 30 francs. Because of the deception of the authorities in the enrichment of intention is a so-called Katalogtat, were referred to the two for seven years in the country.
Denmark increased hurdles
And what of the married couples? The majority of are not together anymore and have to leave Switzerland in different directions. Those who are still here, must reckon with criminal proceedings.
Do the two men had first noticed the migration office. Men from Bangladesh, who are married to women from the EU area, where all the women seem to be employed by the same Take-away? A tip to law enforcement authorities sufficed to bring the whole process in motion.
the island of Aero is a need for marriages of convenience, which is registered in Denmark now. The so far relatively UN-bureaucratic to get Married was complicated. According to a Danish news Agency, is to be prevented, that the liberal legislation will need access to the EU. Since the beginning of the year, the papers, the marriage will not be consent of the municipalities, but by a Central authority, checked. (Tages-Anzeiger)
