Police arrested two Iraqi nationals on felony forgery charges on Tuesday, with one of the two men wanted in Turkey on a homicide warrant.
The two men, 32 and 33, were arrested after a tip-off and following an investigation. The pair stand accused of manufacturing forged travel documents for illegal migrants congregating in central Athens.
An international arrest warrant for willful homicide was pending against the 32-year-old in Turkey, while he is also accused of firing on a group of compatriots in a cafe in central Athens frequented by migrants.
A search of their residence in the west Athens working-class district of Peristeri led to the confiscation of numerous forged travel documents, passport-type photos of other foreign nationals, formal statements and other documents.
