PRAGUE: Czech police said on Tuesday they had busted a crime ring forging Lithuanian passports, ID cards and driving licenses used by migrants to illegally enter the European Union. The accused sold fake documents to “foreigners from third countries” who were not allowed to enter EU territory, said Pavel Hantak, spokesman for the organized crime squad. The police charged ten suspects ranging in age from 28-46 years with forgery and facilitating illegal sojourn in the Czech Republic. They face up to ten years in prison if convicted. Five Ukrainians, all members of an organized crime group, are in custody after being nabbed in the May 18 raid.
