MP for North East Hertfordshire, Sir Oliver Heald, paid tribute to the work of Operation Nexus in the House of Commons. The Operation aims to maximise intelligence, information, and world-wide links to improve how the UK deals with and responds to foreign nationals breaking the law.
Sir Oliver told the House that is was “vital to identify these people and, where possible, get them out of the country”. The Home Office Minister said that Operation Nexus “has succeeded in removing 3,000 foreign national criminals by identifying them early in the custody suites and by working alongside our immigration enforcement teams and the police. This approach enables us to deal with any issues at the earliest opportunity and see that these people are removed.”
