Pretoria - Forensic consultant Paul O'Sullivan is expected to appear in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court for contravening the Immigration Act after he was found in possession of three passports on Friday.

O'Sullivan was arrested at the OR Tambo International Airport on Friday night, while he was with his family.

The Hawks had received a tip-off from the Department of Home Affairs that someone was using multiple passports.

A task team from Gauteng was dispatched to the airport and on arrival O'Sullivan was caught with three different passports.

A statement issued by O'Sullivan's representatives on Saturday said he was not trying to flee the country as had been speculated.

O'Sullivan was merely taking his daughters back to their school in London and he was expected to return on Thursday, the statement added.
