Excuses for opposing bail #1 (and #2)

We suggest that if the sureties were aware of x’s illegal status in the UK, they have been complicit in assisting him in defying UK immigration law, and are therefore unsuitable in ensuring he comply with the conditions of bail. Alternatively, if these sureties were unaware of x’s illegal status in the UK, it suggests these sureties would be unable to exercise sufficient influence over x as they have been unaware of his past immigration history.
