Two men and a woman arrested after immigration raid on Japanese takeaway in Salford
Home Office investigators swooped on the Osechi street food takeaway on Bolton Road in Swinton after intelligence from the public.
Staff were questioned to check if they had the right to live and work in the country.
A 37-year-old Mongolian man was found to have no permission to work in the UK. He was arrested and is due to be deported.
A second man, aged 35, was found to have overstayed his visa. He was also arrested and has been granted temporary release while his case is progressed.
A 34-year-old woman was held at an address on Bolton Road on suspicion of overstaying her visa. She has also been granted temporary release.
Osechi was served with a notice warning that a financial penalty of up to £20,000 per illegal worker would be imposed unless evidence is provided that correct pre-employment checks were carried out.
The raids were carried out by the Greater Manchester Home Office Immigration Enforcement team on Friday night.
