A foreign crook up for deportation is still here after claiming he could not leave due to piles.
Fraudster Jean Claude Happi Siewe was due to be kicked out last July but insisted he was unfit to fly.
The authorities even sent him for a medical inspection to try to prove he should leave.
A further attempt to deport him failed in September following a row over his nationality.
A source has claimed that while the Home Office say he is from Cameroon, Happi Siewe claims he is French.
He added: “The Cameroon government don’t want to know him.
Happi Siewe was convicted of false representation and possessing false identity documents and sentenced in January 2013.
He is in Nottingham Prison.
The Home Office, last Sunday, said haemorrhoids were not the reason the first attemt to get him out failed, but declined to explain what blocked the action.
A spokesman said: “We continue to pursue Jean Claude Happi Siewe’s deportation.”
Immigration Minister James Brokenshore cut the grounds for appeal against being thrown out from 17 to four last year.
Since then 300 foreigners have been sent home on a “deport first, appeal later” basis.
