A Hatfield woman has appeared in court for possessing fake US dollar notes.
Mercyline Bvute was not asked to plead when she appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa.
The State led by Sabastian Mutizirwa told the court that on March 8, the woman went through a vetting process at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport departure hall and the aviation security officer Wendy Gomo saw bunches of photographed US$100 notes.
Gomo assumed that the notes were meant for fraud purposes prompting her to consult her superiors leading to Bvute’s arrest.
