Following the conviction city centre police tweeted a picture of Gabor’s stash, which included a wad of £5, £10 and £20 notes, dozens of coins, an empty paper cup and a crumpled bag of Transform A-Snack crisps.
Murder investigation launched as man is stabbed to death in LondonToday GMP City Centre tweeted that Gabor had recently been arrested again on suspicion of begging and had now been deported to Romania ‘for not complying with EU Treaty Rights’.
Under EU law citizens can only be deported from one member state to another for reasons of public policy or public security.
It’s not clear exactly which treaty rights Gabor has been deemed to have breached, but repeat criminal offending is grounds for deportation.
