Two officers busted for forging passports

TWO PASSPORT section employees with the Slovak police were charged with abuse of power after it was discovered that they had forged passports and received thousands of dollars for the counterfeits.

A Košice investigator charged 29-year-old Emesa K. from Trebišov and 32-year-old Peter T. from Slovenské Nové Mesto on July 8.

Stanislav Ryban, spokesman with the Chief Investigator's Office, said that an as-yet unidentified citizen from the former Soviet Union had used Emesa K. to produce at least two fake Slovak passports.

Peter K. was paid $3,000 for helping provide the service, police inspectors discovered. Both culprits were taken into custody. Emesa K. faces a penalty of up to eight years and Peter T. up to five years.
