Two women arrested with fake IDs

Two women have been arrested in Paphos for illegally staying on the island, forgery and circulating forged documents.

According to the police, at 9.15 on Sunday morning members of the immigration police carried out a search at a hotel in Coral Bay and found two women from Georgia, 41 and 49, working as part of the cleaning staff.

Further investigations showed they were staying in Cyprus illegally and they were arrested.

The employer then told police when he hired them they said they were from Latvia and they showed him ID cards identifying them as such. They gave the ID cards to police and they are thought to be fake.

Under questioning, they told the police they bought the forged documents overseas, for €100 each.
