allAfrica.com: Kenya: Somali Man Charged With Making a Fake Refugee Certificate

A Somali man was charged yesterday in court for making a fake refugee certificate.
He however did not plea to the charges as a Somali interpreter was not in court.
Mohamed Abdi Ali, 34, allegedly forged the certificate on April 1, 2011, within Nairobi CBD.
The court heard on April 14 this year at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport entrance, Ali was arrested by police officers while trying to get out of the country.
During interrogation, he produced the certificate to show he is a refugee.
Ali was charged in court and the magistrate ordered him to be escorted to United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for his status to be verified.
It was later established that he was not a registered refugee by the UNHCR.
His case will be mentioned tomorrow when he will plead to the charges.
