Antigua: Passport office worker charged with passport fraud

Shekema Charles, an employee at the Antigua and Barbuda Passport Office, has been charged with five counts of conspiracy to forge the bio pages of Antigua and Barbuda passports.

It is alleged that she conspired with her partner, suspended Assistant Superintendent of Police Ray John, and his mother Yvonne Nickie, who were both charged with conspiracy to forge the country’s passports last April.

Charles, who surrendered to police on Monday after seeking legal advice following the issuance of a wanted bulletin by police last month, was also charged with one count of larceny on Tuesday afternoon. The information comes from a police source close to the probe.

She isn’t the only one facing the larceny charge, though. Last year John was also accused of larceny and receiving 54 multi-layered infilling sheets valued $21,700, and one multi-layered infilling patch, valued $1,300 – property of the Antigua and Barbuda Passport Office.
