‘Grass up those who flout housing laws’
Wednesday 20th February 2013, 12:00PM GMT.
HOUSING yesterday called on islanders to anonymously ‘snitch’ on foreign workers who were flouting housing licence laws.
The department said it would welcome tip-offs from residents in its ongoing clampdown against potential overseas lawbreakers.
It follows the successful prosecution of a seasonal worker who was fined £1,200 for failing to leave the island for the required three-month period, needed under a short-term licence, for four years running.
Following the verdict, director of housing control Esther Ingrouille, pictured, said the department vowed to investigate information passed on about any of the hundreds of licensed workers in Guernsey, including anonymous ‘snitch’ calls.
