Three foreign nationals -- from Syria, Iraq and the Palestinian territories -- were arrested in central Athens’ Neos Kosmos district accused of supplying illegal migrants with forged documents for use in a legalisation process, as well as for entering Greece or for easier access to other European countries, authorities said on Monday.
A police search in a house used by the 26-year-old Syrian man revealed 101 forged passports from various countries, two Bulgarian ID cards, four Belgian residence permits, a Portuguese citizen card, a Belgian driver’s license, a blank German consular certification, nine Greek residence permits, paraphernalia used in forgery schemes and a UV device used to identify forged documents.
