Greek Police, Interpol nab international forger
A 39-year-old Anglo-Sudanese man arrested in Athens last week as part of a joint operation by Greek police and Europol was a member of an international forgery ring that was unraveled in May, authorities said on Wednesday.
Mohamed A., also known as Ageep, was nabbed after a stakeout by police outside a passport forgery workshop in Kypseli.
The suspect told police he arrived in Athens to replace a 40-year-old forger from Sudan, Taha S., after his arrest May.
Mohamed A. was arrested in an operation code-named Ermis after police received information he was involved in the trafficking of undocumented migrants to the UK.
