Customer Question

my brother was detained by immigration when he entered the UK when he entered using an Indonesian passport with a valid visa.  He had previously entered the UK using his Australian passport with a different name.  He is being questioned why he had two passports with two different names.  Both passports (Australian and Indonesian) are genuine, not fake.  Please kindly reply at the soonest as he is currently being interviewed at the immigration now.
