The Guyana Police Force is investigating an alleged forgery of documents committed by a Cuban national on Friday morning at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

Investigations revealed that the Cuban national was scheduled to depart Guyana on Copa Airlines flight, CW179, destined for Panama City at 03:50hrs this morning.

However, when he presented his passport and visa to a representative of the airlines, suspicion arose.

The passport and visa from Canada were examined and suspected to have been forged. The Copa Airlines representative made contact with the Canadian Embassy for verification and was informed that the visa was not authentic.

The suspect was immediately arrested. His passport was lodged at the Timehri Police Station General Property Book and he was placed into custody.

Investigations are in progress.
