By BBN Staff: Yesterday the Belize Immigration Department busted two Asian Nationals in Belmopan with a fake nationality certificate.
According to reports, a Chinese national arrived in Belize on Sunday and on Monday, he visited the Social Security office in Belmopan along with his Taiwanese translator to apply for a Social Security card using the fake nationality certificate.
The documents immediately raised red flags so officials at the Social Security Office alerted the Immigration Department about it.
The Chinese man and his Taiwanese translator were both detained pending charges of uttering on a false nationality certificate.
It is suspected that after getting the Social Security card, the Asian National would have then applied for a Belizean Passport using the fake nationality certificate.
