You have to wonder what he was playing at, why was he still in the country 2 weeks after his visa expired ?

They don't stamp "USED" on it until they issue a new one/extension, so he must have got an extension. Just photocopied the wrong one. The article also says it was a tourist visa but it's an E.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
