    Murder plot mastermind deported asylum seekers for Home Office

    A man who masterminded a murder plot ran a firm which was employed by the Home Office for more than two years deporting asylum seekers, it has emerged.

    Critics accused the Government of not carrying out proper checks on Mark Ayres who - under the name Mark Heaver - was jailed in 1995 for 13 years for arranging the killing of boxing manager Michael Donovan.

    Released early from prison, Heaver changed his identity and set up the security group ITA (Overseas Escorts), which was established in 2005 primarily to manage a Home Office contract to "remove and deport failed asylum seekers and illegal immigrants from the UK".

    The agreement between the company and the Government was said to be worth around £8 million and 46-year-old Ayres, a former police officer, was the CEO. It is understood he left the company at the end of last year.
  2. The incompetence of the present government no longer surprises me.

    Or being cynical,was corruption involved here?.
