Greek Cypriot police have caught three foreigners who were carrying 16 fake notes, each with a face value of 500 Euros, and alleged that these were brought over from the TRNC.

This arrest came after a sting operation where one of the police officers pretended to be a buyer and paid 4,000 Euros for the 16 notes. The operation was carried out in the Greek part of Nicosia.

All three foreigners were in Nicosia Criminal Court yesterday and held for 6 days to allow police time to conclude investigations.
