Romanians ranked the second last year, after the Poles, as far as the number of criminal sentences passed last year in Great Britain, according to data from the British Ministry of the Interior, quoted by Mediafax.

 In total, 27.563 EU citizens were sentenced last year in Great Britain, compared to 10,736 in 2007.

Thus, Polish citizens received 6,777 crime sentences last year. Romanians come second with 4,343 crime sentences.

 However, only 1,480 citizens were expelled out of Great Britain last year.

 The number of EU citizens sentenced in Great Britain has increased threefold after 2007 when Romania and Bulgaria joined the European Union, according to the same sources.
