An African woman, aged 30, was booked by police and referred to criminal court for forging passport stamps in attempt to leave through the country’s airport.
The incident took place last December, when the defendant came across an employee assigned to check passport and visa details of travellers.
It took seconds for the experienced employee to notice the fake stamp while checking her passport.
