Fake Dollars: Two Greek Cypriots arrested

18 December 2012

Earlier today, as part of an on-going police operation, Turan Kurisi was arrested while in possession of 352 fake US$100 notes.

At a press conference today, Ali Adalier, Deputy General of the police, said that Kurisi’s two accomplices had also been apprehended.

These two accomplices are Greek Cypriots, Lois Loizou and Tasoula Kosta who, it is claimed, supplied the fake dollars from South Cyprus. Both of the Greek Cypriots were stopped and arrested as they attempted to enter into North Cyprus through the Metehan crossing last night.
