Sex and the immigration judges: Act IV

The epic serial of the Brazilian slapper and the immigration judges has finally come to a close, of sorts. Roselane Driza, the blackmailing illegal immigrant, has been given 33 months; but, the Daily Telegraph tells us, it is not over yet. There are plans for a second series:

Driza's lawyers said they would appeal against her convictions since new evidence had emerged. Frances Oldham, QC, said colleagues of one of the judges had come forward with material that would have had a "significant effect" on the trial.
No word yet on whether the Inland Revenue is going to examine issues of tax avoidance by the judges involved.
