Expats in court for allegedly forging documents


TWO foreigners accused of forging work and school documents appeared before the Committal Court in Waigani yesterday.
Sumon Dewan, 30, from Nurbarg village, Narayanganz, Bangladesh and MD Faysal, 35, from Adamze village, Narayanganz, Bangladesh appeared before Magistrate Cosmas Bidar.
They were charged with producing fake documents such as grade 10 certificates, Motor Vehicle Insurance Ltd driving licences, Central Transport Authority driving licences and work permits. These were confiscated from their premises in Port Moresby.
Magistrate Bidar had to amend the charges because they were “defective”. Police prosecutor Sgt Joseph Sangam told the court that the two had not surrendered their passports yet.
Magistrate Bidar ordered them to surrender their passports to the court before 4pm today. The matter was adjourned to Dec 11.


  • This is common in PNG, please investigate in those companies that are also operating in PNG and check all expats who are taking up responsibilities that are suitable for Nationals, some expats come in as a trainee and become Managers/assistants over a week. Check their work permits or else National will be like a slve again.
