LAST week was a busy time for National Police officers at Mallorca’s Son Sant Joan Airport in Palma as they arrested five Albanians trying to use fake passports to get to the UK.
It was on Thursday June 3, that the first couple, a woman and her son were travelling on Greek passports to Heathrow and officers detected some irregularities with the documents and decided that they were fake.
The woman was arrested and her son placed into temporary care until such time as her fate is decided.
On the same day, officers spotted three more Albanians who were on the same flight, this time to Stansted, travelling on Danish and Polish passports so all three were arrested.
Finally, a fifth adult again trying to get to London with a fake Croatian passport was also spotted by the National Police border check.
In all, two men and three women, all in their 20s were taken into custody.
