Seven Chinese deported over false visas

Seven Chinese nationals who were detained at Prague’s Ruzyně airport on Tuesday after trying to enter the country with false visas are to be deported to their homeland later today, the ctk news agency reported. The visas were made using the original forms, which were reportedly lost from the German embassy in China. The Chinese nationals tried to circumvent the routine airport check by cutting off the machine-readable zone from their visas, but an officer noticed this and used a computer database to check the visa numbers. The fraud is being investigated.
