Central African Republic’s (CAR) Foreign Minister has said a reported diplomatic passport for Boris Becker appears to be a fake and the country’s prosecutor general will investigate.

The retired German tennis star claims his role as CAR’s attache to the European Union on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs gives him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in Britain.

But the African nation’s Foreign Minister, Charles Armel Doubane, in comments made to Radio Ndeke-Luka, rejected the passport that is said to be Becker’s.

Presidential spokesman Albert Yaloke Mokpeme said the head of state never appointed Becker to the post, adding that they were not the "custodians of the physical and moral integrity of this gentleman.”

Prosecutor general Eric Didier Tambo said officials will investigate.
