Authorities at the port of Igoumenitsa, northwest Greece, on Thursday said they had intercepted two Pakistani nationals as they attempted to board a ship bound for Italy using fake travel documents that they had bought in Omonia, central Athens for 400 euro. The two men, aged 34 and 33 years old, respectively, were arrested and charged with forging documents, accepting and supplying products of crime and attempting to illegal leave the country.
The two men had stolen residence permits issued in Greece stuck on Pakistani passports. The fake documents and two boat tickets were confiscated by the Igoumenitsa Aliens Police department and the two will be led before a Thesprotia public prosecutor.
