Islamabad, July 27 (ANI): The United Kingdom has no evidence of anyone travelling to Britain on a fake passport as part of Pakistan's Olympic squad, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan has said.
The Dawn quoted envoy Adam Thomson, as saying that the inclusion of unrelated persons in an Olympic squad was impossible, because the accreditation process had been completed months before start of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
A few days ago, The Sun, claimed to have unearthed a 'visa scam', but Thomson said it was not possible for anyone to sneak into an Olympic squad through illegal means.
"Britain is satisfied with Pakistan's visa and passport issuance mechanisms," Thomson said, adding that no visa and passport system in the world was perfect, and there may be "occasional slippages".
Thomson revealed that about 4,000 people were caught last year while trying to acquire the British passport through fake documents. Pakistan was a 'global leader' vis-a-vis fake passports and fake visas, the paper said. (ANI)
