Tue, November 6 2012 | 10:43 am

TANGERANG: Customs and excise officers at Soekarno-Hatta Inernational Airport have seized 60 fake passport books sent through a delivery service company (PJT) from Bangkok, Thailand, recently.

Customs office chief Oza Olivia said on Monday that the passport books were sent inside two packages of shoes and women’s clothes which were reported as for personal use.

“The packages were sent by the same person to two different recipients respectively in Duren Sawit, East Jakarta, and in Gunung Putri in Bogor, West Java,” she said. Adding that 23 of the passport books, from different countries, bore the picture of the same person.

The crime violates the 2011 law on immigration which carries a 2-year imprisonment and Rp 200 million (US$20,822) fine.
