Man smuggles wife to Britain in suitcase after visa application rejected
His wife made several applications for a visa - but was refused each time.
So Bodgen Croitor, 30, decided to smuggle his wife into Britain inside a suitcase.
After catching a ferry from Calais in France, Croitor's car was halted by immigration officials as he approached the car port in Dover, Kent.
Inside the car, officials found a suitcase.
They popped it open and discovered the Latvian man's wife curled inside.
Croitor later explained to a court that it was his wife's idea to hide inside the suitcase.
The court also heard that while Croitor was granted permission to live in UK, his Moldovan-born wife was denied entry after her numerous applications for a visa failed.
Jail sentence suspended
Croitor was given a 14 month jail sentence suspended for two years.
He was ordered to commit 100 hours of community service and pay £400 (S$810).
