Have you spoken to the ukba about this at all?
Yes, it's a despicable thing to do obviously.
S76 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum 2002 the secretary of state may revoke a person's indefinite leave to remain where it is proved that this has been obtained by deception.
You should report this in writing to the UKBA setting out who you are, who he is, using the reference for his ILR application it possible and stating what has happened. They may take action against him, or they may not depending on how busy they are - it's not easy to do this and they would have to find him first.
You should stress in writing to them that you believe this has been a deception from start to finish and that this was entirely pre-conceived for the purpose of securing his leave to remain in this country .YOu should state that they should take this in to account should he decide to attempt to apply for naturalisation in `12 months time as it speaks to his lack of good character which is a requirement to be naturalised.
