Perhaps you have a spouse who you've just had it with. Or, a guy at work who sits twenty feet from you on the trading floor though you wouldn't know it because when he audibly chews his food it's like you're inside his mouth. You can't have them killed, you figure, but holy Christ if you have to see or hear them for one more second you're just going to snap. Enter: a great idea. Next time they have to leave the country, get one of your influential friends with the Department of Homeland Security on the horn and have the offensive parties added to a list of terrorist suspects, like this guy did. They won't be bothering you anymore.
An immigration officer tried to rid himself of his wife by adding her name to a list of terrorist suspects.
He used his access to security databases to include his wife on a watch list of people banned from boarding flights into Britain because their presence in the country is 'not conducive to the public good'.
As a result the woman was unable for three years to return from Pakistan after travelling to the county to visit family.
The tampering went undetected until the immigration officer was selected for promotion and his wife name was found on the suspects' list during a vetting inquiry.
