IlieTwo eastern European men were removed from the UK within days of each other after being caught attempting to use forged documents to enter the country illegally at Bristol Airport.

One of the men claimed he was travelling to take part in a body building competition, but when his deception was found out he admitted he was trying to enter the country to work illegally.

The Ukrainian man arrived in Bristol on 11 September aboard a flight from Paris. He produced an Estonian passport, which if genuine would have entitled him entry to the UK as a European Economic Area (EEA) national. He said he intended to take part in a body building competition after doing the same thing in France.

But a detailed examination of the passport by officers revealed it was a forgery.

Following an interview and the discovery of his genuine Ukrainian passport in his bags, oh what a giveaway, the 31-year-old admitted his deception adding that he had paid 10,000 euros for the false document. He claimed he had used it to travel from Ukraine throughout Europe and had never encountered problems with its use before landing in the UK.

After admitting he intended to work illegally in the UK he was removed to France the same day.

Days earlier, on 8 September, UKBA officers had stopped another illegal from using a false document.

A man arrived on a flight from Treviso, Italy, claiming to be from Greece. He presented a Greek identity card at passport control, which officers examined and found to be a forgery.

A baggage search revealed a Greek driving licence which was also identified as a forgery. After admitting he was, in fact, Albanian the 34-year-old was detained overnight and removed to Italy the next day. Returned to sender, let’s have more of that!

Poor passport checks at European airports is cause for concern when Europe is supposed to be on guard against terrorism.
