Boris Becker Tries To Use Diplomatic Passport to Get Out of Bankruptcy Case - Finds Out It's Fake



Former Tennis champ, Boris Becker, is in the midst of a bankruptcy case in London. Last week, Becker claimed the case could not continue because he had diplomatic immunity from the Central African Republic (he claims to be the "attache for sports, humanitarian, and cultural affairs in the European Union") which he proved by showing he had a diplomatic passport.

There's just one problem - the passport is a fake.

The CAR embassy in Belgium confirmed they had issued Becker the passport however someone high up in CAR's foreign ministry claims the passport is a fake.

As told to a French news agency, the serial number on the passport matched a passport that was one of a batch stolen in 2014. Becker's passport is dated March 19, 2018 yet it doesn't bear the signature or stamp of the foreign minister.

Charles Armel Doubane, the foreign minister of CAR, told Reuters there will now be an investigation launched into who issued the passport.

No word on whether or not Becker knew it was fake.
P.S the official who said the passport is fake, also said Becker's job profile doesn't even exist
