Passport Factory Operator Jailed for 3 Years

At the property the UK Border Agency uncovered 50 counterfeit passports in various stages of construction purporting to be Ghanaian, Nigerian, Irish, Czech and even British issue. They also seized:

  • 20 counterfeit German, Dutch and French Identity cards
  • 40 fake Home Office and other National Government rubber visa stamps and ink pads
  • Cutting boards
  • Razor blades
  • Paint thinners, glue & laminates
  • Forged visas
  • 30 blank birth and marriage certificates

The UKBA even uncovered an ‘order book’ containing the details of prospective customers and passport sized photos ready to be used.

Alex Ttaris of the UK Border Agency’s Criminal and Financial Investigation Team said that \’This was a sophisticated criminal operation, and I have no doubt that these fake documents would have been used to flout immigration rules, gain employment, open bank accounts and obtain other goods and services by deception.\’
