Three arrested for travelling on fake passports in St Maarten

Two nationals of the Dominican Republic, who left Trinidad via a Caribbean Airlines flight, were arrested in St Maarten for travelling on fake documents.

According to a report from The Daily Herald, the man and woman arrived at the Princess Juliana International Airport on Saturday using a fake Costa Rican and Guatemalan passport.

The report said officials suspected the couple intended to travel to another destination even though they did not have tickets for another location.

Twenty-four hours earlier, another Dominican was arrested for attempting to leave the island for France on a fake Guatemalan passport.

They were processed and are scheduled to be deported this week.
