American man, 73, jailed over false passport applications


A 73-year-old American man has been sentenced to 27 months in prison “for challenging and threatening the integrity of the passport system in this country”.

Randolph Kirk Parker, who has been in custody since his arrest at the Cork Passport Office last September, had pleaded guilty to 5 charges in a case where he had applied for Irish passports in the names of two babies – Geoffrey Warbrook and Philip Morris – who died in the 1950s.

Sentencing him today at Cork Circuit Court Judge, Jonathan Dunphy said he had to take into account a number of aggravating factors in the case including the fact that Mr Palmer’s actions challenged and threatened the integrity of the passport system here, as well as his lack of co-operation with investigating gardaí.
