Or: "I have a red book (referring to the British passport), if youWhen you are pregnant, you want to find someone as your father, and let me send me privately. "

For the exposure of this illegal act, the British Ministry of Political Affairs stated that it has taken measures to prevent and discover the use of false birth certificates for immigration fraud.
However, immigration lawyer Harjap Bhangal questioned whether the Ministry of the Interior had adopted sufficient actions.He said that the Ministry of the Interior has not realized that this approach has existed in the immigration communities in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Sri Lanka for many years.
He suggested that if only one parent is British when the newborn registered or applied for a passport, and the other party does not have a visa, then the British government should ask for a simple DNA test.
