The Sun in a news story
Olympic ‘terror visas’ racket
Pakistan passport gang is smashed
uncovered a visa scam being run by Pakistani officials a Lahore based politician and the Dream Land Travel Agency. This UK based tabloid claims that the scam gives potential terrorists the chance to sneak into Britain with Pakistan’s Olympic team. An undercover investigator of SUN (the British daily) infiltrated the ring offering the false passports and visas and access to London 2012 as bogus support staff.
The paper said: “We uncovered a ring of corrupt Pakistani officials and travel staff conspiring with a prominent politician to bypass stringent security”. The paper further reported “We were told we could even take part in Friday’s opening ceremony.” The investigator was also informed by a Lahore based politician Abid Choudhry that 7,000 pounds could get him a two month visa and smuggle him into London 2012 as part of Pakistan’s Olympic Squad. At no point did any of the corrupt officials question our reason for wanting to sneak into Britain.
The newspaper secretly filmed Mr Chodhary as he explained how easy it was to get into the Olympic Village by masquerading as a member of the athletes’ support team.
