Claudio DOMICIANO, (47), a resident of Willesden in North London, was  sentenced to 12 months imprisonment at the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court of illegally providing immigration advice.

Domiciano, along with his colleague Jose BRANCO, ran ‘Fenix Consulting’, a firm based in Scrubbs Lane, Willesden London, NW10.  The Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) investigated Fenix Consulting in March 2011.

He was also ordered to pay £500 towards prosecution costs on his release from prison.

Immigration Services Commissioner, Suzanne McCarthy, said: The law exists to protect people from unscrupulous immigration advisers.  It is my Offices responsibility, to enforce the law and I will prosecute those who flout the law and take advantage of their clients.
