Grenfell Tower illegal subletting amnesty announced by Sajid Javid.

Anecdotal evidence suggests people were unlawfully subletting their properties in the tower and are reluctant to come forward.


Grenfell Tower residents who were illegally subletting will not face prosecution, Communities Secretary Sajid Javid has said.

The Cabinet Minister said the move was guided by a concern that “loved ones still missing are identified”.

The protection from prosecution applies to anyone coming to authorities with information about people who were in their flats at the time of the fire.

Anecdotal evidence from residents has indicated that people living in the tower block may have been unlawfully subletting their properties, and that they are reluctant to come forward and report others are missing because of the fear of reprisal.

Guidance issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions said that tenants of Grenfell Tower who were subletting their properties and who “come forward to authorities” to share information “should not face prosecution for offences under section one of the Prevention of Social Housing Fraud Act 2013”.


The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has said it will respect this guidance.

Mr Javid said: “Supporting those affected by the tragic events at Grenfell Tower has been the absolute priority of the Government.

“That includes making sure that loved ones still missing are identified.

“Therefore, I would urge those with information to come forward without fear of prosecution.”

Attorney General Jeremy Wright QC said he hoped the statement would encourage more people to come forward.

“Every piece of information will help the authorities accurately identify who was in the flats at the time of the fire,” he said.

So far 100% of cladding tests carried out following the disaster, covering 181 high rise buildings in 51 local authority areas, have failed.

Red White And Blue is a patriot site for patriots everywhere. For to long now the government and the media have been brainwashing the public and feeding then lies day in and day out. People are now starting to wake up, but time is getting very short. In England alone, the English are now the minority in their own country. Muslims are taking over everywhere and the government are allowing them to take us over. The Labour party started the ball rolling in the 1980's when Tony Blair and Gordon Brown said England is to White and today in 2017, there are more Mosques than Churches, there are over 85 Sharia law courts and Muslims will have taken over Great Britain within the next ten to fifteen years from now. Everything posted on this site is the whole truth, we have nothing to gain by telling lies to anyone, that's the governments and the medias job. This site will bring news from all over the world,we will show you that Islam is the most evil none religion on earth. So check out the blog for yourselves and you will begin to see it is not the powers that be that are on your side, but it is people like us that are fighting for our children's future and the future of everyone that will listen to the truth.
