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.

Taxpayers are forking out £100million a year on translation for immigrants, it was revealed last night.
Police, town halls, hospitals and courts have to pay for translating documents and hiring interpreters.
The biggest spender is the NHS, which is paying out at least £33million, while the Ministry of Justice spends almost 16million.
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said: “The guidance I’ve issued is crystal clear, Councils should stop wasting taxpayers’ money by translating into foreign languages.
“Translation holds people back from integrating into British society. If they can’t speak English, they’re not going to get on. Money saved can be used to protect front-line services.”
A freedom of information request revealed Polish was the top language translated.
But one council helped with 61 languages, including rarely used Fulani, Karen, Tagalog and Visayan.
A hospital in the north-east used interpreters 74 times a day.
Julia Manning, chief executive of the think-tank 2020Health, said: “It should be the responsibility of family and friends to assist with understanding.”
