MANILA - A Filipina in New Zealand has been accused of operating a visa scam.
According to the website NZCity, Loraine Anne Cander Jayme is facing 284 dishonesty related charges including several counts of forgery, using forged documents, and providing false information.
The Hamilton High Court ruled to have her name published despite her lawyer's appeal, citing some reasons including death threats and the impact it may have on Jayme's 7-year-old son.
But the judge pointed out that "publication may in fact reduce the threat to her safety because it would inform those aggrieved that the matter is before the courts."
Jayme was arrested in October after Immigration New Zealand found over a thousand Filipino dairy workers were caught out in the scam.
The report said Jayme has been remanded on bail without plea and scheduled to reappear in the Hamilton District Court on March 16.
