The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives on Monday arrested two foreign nationals found with bundles of fake currency in Nyali-Mombasa, following an intelligence-led operation by the DCI’s Transnational Organized Crime Unit detectives.
The two Jamil Salman Abdul, 43 and 30-yr-old Tesfawork Ermias Dogso were also found to be operating within the country illegally.
Search conducted after intercepting a Nissan Note, KDA 505Y occupied by the two led to the recovery of a khaki envelope bearing 198 forged Euro notes in 100 denominations, hidden between the driver’s and co-driver’s seats.
All the notes bore similar serial numbers – BCE ECB EZB EKT EKP 2002 – and more are believed to have been used in defrauding unsuspecting Kenyans.
As interrogations on the suspects continue, the exhibits have been secured pending production in court when the duo will be charged.
