According to The Advertiser, the 44-year-old Rui Wang (transliteration) opened an account with a fake driver’s license at the Federal Bank on January 1.The police received reports of suspicious transactions and rushed to the scene of the incident to expose the incident of illegal residence.
The prosecutor said: "Wang Rui tried to use his Victorian driver's license to open a new bank account, but the police found after inquiries that the driver's license belongs to another person."
According to reports, the driver's license is different from the Victorian standard driver's license in several places, so the police suspect it is forged.
The prosecutor said: "Our further investigation revealed that Wang Rui was living in Australia illegally. Since his driver's license was forged, the police suspected that his other documents were also forged, and his true identity needs to be confirmed."
“The Australian immigration department also suspects that he is staying in Australia illegally and may deport him.” Wang Rui currently lives in the Stonyfell district of Adelaide. The police did not disclose which country he came from before arriving in Australia.He has been charged with possession of prohibited materials, and he has not raised any defenses.
Wang Rui’s lawyer, Madalena Vellotti, said that Wang Rui lives with his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s son and is the main source of income for the family. Vellotti is also a registered intermediary. She confirmed that Wang Rui's visa expired 12 years ago.
Vellotti said: "Wang Rui was revoked because of drunk driving. Later, someone said that he could change his driver's license, so the driver's license had other people's information, but Wang did not know that the driver's license belonged to it.
Judge John Fahey requested a home imprisonment report and postponed Wang Rui's application for bail so that Velotti could investigate his visa status.
