Rochdale man had fake passport
A MAN has admitted carrying false identification, reports Francis Finch.
Ijaz Rasool, 36, of Marigold Street, Rochdale, pleaded guilty at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court to two charges of owning false Lithuanian documents - a passport and a driving licence - under the name Aslam Muhammad.
The court heard that Rasool, who spoke through a Punjabi translator, was
arrested at Terminal Two of Manchester Airport on 11 November last year, although
he was not using the idenification to enter or leave the country.
A third charge of having a driving licence application form and photographs with the intention of making further documents was dropped.
Khadim Al' Hassan, defending, said the charge would not be in the public interest and pointed out Rasool’s lack of previous convictions.
Judge Adrian Smith granted Rasool conditional bail until sentencing, which will take place on 29 March.
