Georgians on fake Greek passports deported from Tonga

8:49 pm on 4 November 2016

Seven Georgians who entered Tonga on forged documents in September have now been deported.

The group, which includes a ten year old boy, flew to Nadi this morning, with plans to go to Europe.

Six of the group had been convicted of using forged Greek passports when applying for visas to New Zealand.

Last week they were fined and ordered out of the country within 14 days.

Tonga police say most of the group's basic needs have been catered for by the Ministry of Police.
