Jamaica News: A Chinese national who was arrested at the Sangster International Airport after a fake Madagascar visa was found in his passport was fined $150,000 in the St. James Parish Court on Wednesday.
Forty-year-old Yuangin Mo, who is of a China address, pleaded guilty to uttering a forged document when he appeared before presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small.
Court records revealed that on April 17, 2019, Mo was on his way to board a Condour Airline to Frankfurt Germany with a connection to China when a fraudulent Madagascar visa was seen in his passport.
When the discovery was made, Mo indicated to the immigration officer that he bought the visa at a travel agency in China for US$100 in order to go shopping.
Through an interpreter on Wednesday, Mo told the court that he did not know that the visa was fraudulent and that someone had deceived him. He also apologised to the court.
In handing down sentence, Wong-Small took into consideration Mo’s previous good character and the fact that he pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity. She then fined him $150,000 or six months in prison.
