Malaysian courier jailed for possession of forged travel documents

  • August 06,2013
  • A Malaysian courier involved in possessing four forged Malaysian passports of others' identities was jailed by the District Court today (August 1).
    The 30-year-old male Malaysian courier was charged with one count of possessing forged travel documents and was sentenced to jail for 32 months today.
    This April, the defendant was stopped by Immigration investigators near the boarding gate of the Hong Kong International Airport for a flight to Paris, France, via Istanbul, Turkey. Upon searching, an envelope containing four suspected forged Malaysian passports was found in the defendant's luggage. He admitted under caution that he was paid RMB9,000 by a middleman as a reward to deliver the forged passports to Istanbul to another middleman via Hong Kong.
    Under the Immigration Ordinance, it is an offence to possess a forged travel document. Offenders are liable to prosecution and upon conviction to a maximum fine of $150,000 and imprisonment for 14 years. Those aiding and abetting such crimes are liable to the same penalty.(Publications and Press Releases)
