Mr Saksena, 42, president and ceo of Saks IT Group LLC, a business based in Manchester, New Hampshire, presumably submitted 45 deceitful visa applications, declaring that his business was employing foreign employees to supply expert services to a California-based business.
The California business had actually not gotten in into an agreement with Saks IT Group and had no jobs for foreign employees. Mr Saksena understood that foreign employees would not be used, acting United States lawyer John J Farley stated the other day.
Mr Saksena submitted visa applications that incorrectly declared tasks waited for the foreign employees at the California business, the United States Justice Department stated.
He supported those applications with fake independent specialist arrangements in between his IT group and the other business with sham work orders that supposed to reveal that the foreign employees would offer expert services for the California business, it declared.
