SO STEALING BECKHAM WASN'T ENOUGH?

Rate this Entry

Another high profile security snaf this time involving the president of Real Madrid. From the team's web site:

Ramón Calderón detained in a New York airport due to mistaken identity



Real
Madrid President Ramón Calderón was accidentally detained for several
hours in a New York airport after an immigration officer saw that one
of the President's surnames was blacklisted.



This
coincidence activated the typical security measures which have been
stepped up in recent days due to the U.N. summit and President George
Bush's visit to New York.

As soon as the incident was known, the Club contacted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Interior.




Once the matter had been resolved, the President of Real Madrid, who is
in New York for personal reasons, received an apology and continued
about his business.

    Imagine if this can happen to a high profile individual, what is going to happen with the no match rule letters. Plenty of mistaken identities I would say.

    How many low profile people does this happen to who _don't_ receive an apology?

    Who are effected most by these security checks are innocent Muslims.
    I know one of my friend went to Pakistan for a visit, after his studies and work here for more than 7 years. He is awaiting in Pak for visa from last 6 months as it seems his name needs security clearance. God knows when he will be back ..
