WRONGFUL ARREST OVER SUSPECTED 'SHAM MARRIAGE'
The BBC reported that Northern Ireland police admit that sometimes, they get things wrong following the arrest of Ms. Yanan Sun who was just about to marry her Northern Irish fiancée in Derry. Ms. Yanan Sun who is pregnant is understandably distraught. Her fiancée has commented that an apology is not enough.
This year we issued proceedings in a similar case and have first hand experience of the human side of these police blunders which cause great stress, embarrassment and anger for a couple about to wed. A wrongful arrest for any person is a frightening and humiliating occurrence, let alone an arrest on a day that is supposed to be one of the happiest days of that person's life. It is not acceptable for State authorities to act in this manner.
