Czech drug smuggler Karel Sroubek has lodged an application for residency in his true identity.
Earlier this month Stuff reported he had obtained a passport in his real name, but had yet to provide it to an Immigration New Zealand (INZ) office with the appropriate paperwork to have residency considered.
INZ officials have confirmed they have since received a copy of Sroubek’s travel document, in his true identity, with the appropriate paperwork. This was now “being considered”.
If Sroubek ends up being able to stay, it will be thanks to ILG.
