Congolese ‘fake passport network’ busted in Mauritius

Published

on

A network of Congolese nationals who have been falsifying identity documents and fake documents from the Republic of Congo in order to obtain the Mauritian passport, has been busted by the authorities in Mauritius.

The Passport and Immigration Office (PIO) Production Section officers detected the fraud and identified the masterminds of this network as Congolese nationals Nzema Crouche Francis and Bosalo Bosete, as well as their Mauritian accomplice, Yolande Benoit.

They were arrested on Thursday last week, while three Congolese women who were trying to flee from Mauritius were also arrested by PIO officers on Tuesday this week.

The police told Africanews that they found several birth certificates that seem to have been falsified, in the custody of these criminal masterminds.

These documents would presumably have been used to facilitate the obtaining of Mauritian passports.

“Equipped with Mauritian passports, Africans of Congolese origin could have more easily access to European countries,” says an investigator.

In Mauritius, those found guilty of falsifying or altering state documents commit a serious offense under section 66 of the Civil Status Act and can be jailed for up to 30 years.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.

The country assessed all applications for visitor visas on a case-by-case basis. This applies regardless of a person’s country of origin or nationality.

The country is under pressure to transfer the remaining 30 children from the island.
