Woman arrested for forgery

A 38-year-old woman was remanded for four days on Monday after being accused of forgery, providing fake documents and criminal impersonation.

Police said that the woman entered a bank on Poseidonos avenue in Kato Paphos where she presented a fake identity card and asked the clerk to open an account where she could deposit her salary from the hotel she worked at every month.

The clerk insisted, however, that if the woman wanted to open an account she would have to provide her passport as well. At this point the woman left the bank and not come back.

The clerk’s suspicion over the woman’s identity led her to notify police, who went to the bank to investigate the Greek ID card.

After further investigation by police, they discovered that the ID card was fake.

The 38-year-old woman was found in the hotel she worked at and discovered to be a Georgian national.

The woman in question was arrested and admitted that she had bought the Greek ID card from an unknown individual in Cyprus.
