A Haitian man accused of attempting to obtain two Bahamian passports by fraud was yesterday denied bail.
Joseph Earle Francis, of Malcolm Road, appeared before Magistrate Ambrose Armbrister and was charged with two counts of attempted fraud by false pretenses and possession of a forged document.
Prosecutors said Francis, on February 13, attempted to obtain two Bahamian passports in the names of Jeef Earl Francis and Margarette Francis by false pretenses.
Francis was also charged with possession of a forged document — a Bahamian NIB card in his name.
He was denied bail and returns to court on April 24 for the start of his trial.
