Former Passport Office worker jailed for illegally processing passports

A former worker at the Passport Office has been jailed for two years for processing passports for people who were not entitled to them.

Barry Kindregan of Downside Heights, Skerries in Dublin was paid thousands of euro to provide the passports between 2012 and 2013.

Sometime in August 2012, a colleague asked Barry Kindregan for advice on getting Irish passports for some people in South Africa.

They weren’t entitled to them, but Kindregan agreed to process the applications after being offered €2,500 per passport.

He was never paid for the first two passports, but later admitted processing another five, for which he was paid €5,000 each.
