Border Police officers announced that in the last 24 hours they have documented seven people who submitted for specific state border control forged documents - five powers of attorney, a passport and a green card.
The most recent case was registered by border police at Larga crossing point. Today, after 01.00 pm, three vehicles - a Ford Mondeo and two cars of Volkswagen Passat model, registered in Lithuania, appeared simultaneously at the entry to the country. The cars were driven by Ukrainian citizens, aged between 25 and 35. In order to verify the available information, documents, presented for transport units were subjected to a thorough check. As a result, border guards found that notarial powers, issued by the Lithuanian authorities, contain obvious signs of tampering. At the same time, the passenger of a transient transport, a Moldovan citizen, aged 33, presented a power of attorney, signed into her name, which also turned out to be forged. In this case, falsified documents were seized and sent for expertise, while the means of transport were arrested and placed on the territory of Larga crossing point, pending completion of investigations, according to the press service of the Border Police.
The forged power of attorney was another reason to examine the Ukrainian citizen that entered the country by Criva crossing point. The Ukrainian citizen told the border guards that a friend of his made a notarized power of attorney for the vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat, registered in Poland, and he was unaware of the forgery.
The fifth Ukrainian citizen was documented by the border guards in Giurgiulesti – Galati. He presented to the border control a forged Green Card auto insurance for the Opel Astra that he drove. The document, issued by the Ukrainian authorities, was brought to examination.
The last case of forged documents was reported by Valcinet checkpoint, where a young Moldovan citizen tried to leave the country with a forged passport. The young woman, aged 19, was identified as a resident of Manoilesti village, Ungheni District. A thorough verification of the passport revealed that the two types of residence visa stamps "РАЗРЕШЕНО ВРЕМЕННОЕ ПРОЖИВАНИЕ" and "ЗАРЕГИСТРИРОВАН" were applied illegally. In her statements, the woman said that she had executed her passport through an acquaintance for the amount of 80 thousand rubles. For use of false documents, the person is liable to a fine of up to 300 c.u. or unpaid community work from 150 to 200 hours, or imprisonment of up to two years, according to the art.361 .1 CC of the RM.
