Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Man Fined $150,000 For Using False documents to Get Jamaican PassportA man has been fined $150,000 for using false documents to procure a Jamaican passport in the name Richard Anthony Clifford, when in reality his name is Alton Oliver Thorpe.

Thorpe, 49, of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, pleaded guilty to making a false declaration when he appeared in the St. James Parish Court on Wednesday.

It is alleged that sometime in 2017, Thorpe made an application for a passport in the name Alton Oliver Thorpe. During the processing, the face recognition system revealed that another application was made previously on October 14, 2007 in the name Richard Anthony Clifford with the same photograph and that the passport was issued.

During Wednesday’s proceedings, Thorpe, who has been residing in Canada for over 20 years,  told presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small that he did not apply for it personally and that someone had procured it for him.

In passing sentence, the judge asked Thorpe to pay a fine of $150,000 or serve six months behind bars.
