AN immigrant is trying to sue the UK Government for 11MILLION — for making him “unhappy”.
Daniel Kiunsi (pictured) claims officials violated his human rights by confiscating his passport three years ago.
The grasping Tanzanian says it caused his family “great unhappiness” and insists the authorities should have provided for their “basic needs” such as food, rent, council bills and other costs.
Kiunsi says he “scientifically calculated” the £11million using internationally accepted methods and has issued a claim with the High Court.
The electrical engineer, in his forties, had been in the UK on a work visa but left to take a job abroad. When he returned, officials seized his passport as he didn’t qualify to re-enter. He was let in to arrange for his family to leave — but is still here.
Kiunsi, of Upminster, Essex, is citing his right to liberty, a fair trial and private and family life — plus human rights laws relating to “torture or inhuman or degrading treatment”.
He said: “It’s the issue of the happiness.”
The UK Border Agency said: “We will challenge this robustly.”
