Dr Hilamani Hansen pleaded not guilty to fraud charges

A Tongan American, Dr. Hilamani Hansen, aged 63, has pleaded not guilty to fraud charges in connection with an immigration adoption scheme he set up that promised to grant American citizenship to those who are successful in being adopted. The California entrepreneur was arrested and charged with 12 counts of fraud, and one count of conspiracy to commit fraud by obtaining money from an illegal immigration scheme. Dr. Hansen is being remanded in custody at a Sacramento prison.

The FBI arrested Dr. Hansen last week after investigating him for over a year in co-operation with the Department of Homeland Security. The Federal Police brought the charges against him.
