Two men have been sentenced to one year and seven months jail respectively after they pleaded guilty to using documents belonging to other people, and of trying to deceive the Principal Immigration Officer.

Mohammed Zakaria, 31, and Mostafa Ali Yaaqoub, 21, both from Sudan and who live at the Open Centre at Ħal Far, were charged with committing the crime on 6 April.

Mostafa Ali Yaaqoub was also accused of being a relapser, and therefore was sentenced to five more months than Zakaria.
