Woman indicted in court for allegedly making false statements to USCIS


A federal grand jury indicted yesterday a woman who allegedly made fraudulent statements to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The indictment charged Jonie Esther Babauta Uddin with one count of false statement.

According to the indictment, Uddin made false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations to USCIS on Nov. 18, 2011.

In a form I-130, Jonie Uddin allegedly represented that she lived in Chalan Piao with Tamiz Uddin, which she knew such representations were false in that she did not live in Chalan Piao and had never lived with Tamiz Uddin.

Form I-130 refers to a U.S. citizen’s petition for an alien relative.

Additionally, in the form G-325 (biographic information), the defendant again allegedly represented that she lived in Chalan Piao.
