Barack Obama's half-brother was refused entry to the UK after providing false documentation in a visa application, it was reported last night.
Immigration officers noticed that one of the documents supplied by Samson Obama with an application for a visitor's visa in February was false, leading them to make further inquiries and connect him with a police investigation into an alleged sex attack.
Samson Obama, one of the president's Kenyan half-brothers, had been arrested by police after the alleged attack on a girl in Britain last November but was not charged, according to the News of the World
The mobile phone shop manager made a stop-over in the UK in January on the way to his half-brother's inauguration but stayed air-side at East Midlands airport. A Home Office spokesman said immigration officers making use of biometric technology noticed one of the documents supplied with a visa application a month later was false. A spokesman for the UK Border Agency said: "We will oppose the entry of individuals to the UK where we believe their presence is not conducive to the public good."
