45 arrests last week at Crete airports for forged travel docs

Forty-five third country nationals were arrested at three commercial airports on Crete between the Aug. 13 to 19 on charges of attempting to fly to west and central European destinations with forged travel documents.

The “preferred” destination was Germany, followed by Italy, Belgium, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.

Flying out of Greece with forged travel documents is a “pricey” method used by criminal rings to smuggle third-country nationals to other Schengen member states.
