Jamaica News: A plea and case management hearing has been set for a St. James man accused of lying to procure a new passport.
Dwight Campbell appeared in the St. James Parish Court Thursday morning to face a charge of making a false declaration.
During the court proceedings on Thursday, the prosecutor informed presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small that she was in receipt of a statement from the Director of Passport Services. Based on what the prosecutor said, Wong-Small set the matter for plea and case management hearing on June 20, and Campbell’s bail was extended.
Meanwhile, disclosure is to be served on the defence attorney on or before May 9.
The court heard that sometime in 2001, at the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) in Montego Bay, for the purpose of procuring a new passport, Campbell made a false statement, that is to say he signed a written declaration that he was Richard Henry, despite knowing same to be false.
Sometime after, he went back to the passport office to apply for another passport in the name Dwight Campbell, and it was at that time that it was revealed that he had previously applied for a passport in the other name.
