Five-month old baby not to be deported

The Immigration service IND made a mistake when it ordered a five-month-old baby to leave the country because her father had not officially recognised the child as his within the official time limit, an IND official told Radio 1 News today. The baby’s Tanzanian mother has a residency permit until 2011. Because her father did not register the baby as his before the birth, the child has Tanzanian nationality and needs an application for residency.
