A sentence of 27 months’ imprisonment imposed on an offender for conspiring to traffic five Hungarian individuals into the UK with intent to exploit them, contrary to the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Act 2004 s.4(1), was not unduly lenient. The offender was not a prime mover in the trafficking scheme and undue weight had not been given to his personal mitigation.
