Cape Town – A man and woman are set to appear in the Springbok Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with fraudulent international passports and permits, the Hawks in the Western Cape said.

The pair, from Cape Town, allegedly worked with unnamed immigration officials at offices in Springbok in the Northern Cape, said spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha.

They were arrested at their homes in Goodwood and Maitland.

"More than 70 passports and accompanying permits of different foreign countries, as well a combined R189 900 in cash were seized at their respective houses."

Ramovha said charges against them related to the contravention of the immigration, money laundering and the prevention of organised crime acts.
