At the control post, on the way to exit the country with the flight Chisinau-Paris, came a 28-year-old man with double citizenship, Moldovan and Romanian. On him were found two fake Romanian identity cards and an original Moldovan driving license, but hidden from the border police.

A fake mandate was a reason of penal investigation for the second time of a Ukrainian citizen. The man aged 28 presented to the entry point to Moldova, driving a car with Bulgarian registration plate. After checking the travel documents and the documents on the car, the border police established that the mandate issued by Bulgarian authorities was fake.
