Passports can be confiscated from passport holders if they are considered to be a risk to leave the country. Such is the case for USA cricket team captain, Steve Massiah. Massiah’s passport was confiscated by the US and his travel is restricted to New York following his November 22nd arrest for falsifying mortgage loan applications.
Massiah, the USA team captain, is not only without a passport, but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison. While Massiah is confined to New York, he was given permission to travel to Florida for the US Cricket Open. Obviously he didn’t need his passport as he did not travel internationally from New York to Florida.
It is unlikely that Massiah will be participating for the New York Region in the USACA Twenty20 Nationals scheduled from January 20 to 22 in Florida. It is in that tournament where the USA squad will be selected for the ICC World Tournament. Without a passport, Massiah will not be of much use to the US Team.
It is alleged that Massiah and two others planned to participate in a scheme to defraud Countrywide Home Loans by obtaining funds under fraudulent pretenses.
While it is a right for US citizens to obtain passports, it is also a privilege to hold a valid US passport. Passport privileges can be revoked on a case by case basis.
