Haitian men caught with bogus documents fined $7,000

Two Haitian men caught with fraudulent documents were each fined $7,000 or one year in prison on Monday.

On May 17, officers from the Immigration Enforcement Unit caught Reginald Jeudy and Rishkard Jeudy with forged re-entry permits from the Department of Immigration, receipts for work permits and travel health visas.

The immigration officers arrested the men, along with two others, on suspicion of illegal landing after they arrived on a Bahamasair flight from Matthew Town, Inagua, the court heard.

The officers found the bogus documents in an envelope while searching their bags, the court heard.

The men pleaded guilty to three counts of possession of forged documents with the assistance of interpreter Charlene Jean when they appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

He fined each of them $7,000 or one year in prison. They will be turned over to immigration for deportation after they pay their fines or serve their sentences.
