* Do Agaytm arrested gang offense to counterfeit currency?
– We have issues in 2011, the number of convicts in which to twenty people, ranged judgments from one year to ten years, and currently we have 40 cases we followed up were referred to the crimes and there are people being held in custody in cases involving counterfeiting of currency, what we felt in the last two years, that most of the fraud was confined to the promotion only, after the fall of the regime and found presses were printing the money, Kmtabah rivers , then stole the printing presses used to print currency which replaced the modern equivalent.
* At the present time, but there are presses specializes in forging currency?
– we capture the groups (filamentous) call them (promoters), and those people who sell a million Almzorb 400 thousand dinars, more than have been arrested are dealing with this style, is recognized in a public place and can not determine their place easily, but does not know one another, there are signs in counterfeit currency can be detected because the fraud is not a high-quality, The currency of origin in which several colors overlapping and difficult warping thoroughly by counterfeiters, which enabled the owners of the markets of their knowledge easily, and therefore became the replacement process difficult by the promoters, the last theaters to promote the amounts of counterfeit was carried out in nightclubs, and we are accused of took promote counterfeit currency through these places, because of the darkness and the case of sugar, which controls on most of the present, and that some customers nightclubs who love Altmzar, Astsagua idea of buying a million fake b 400 000 Danarliqoumoua Bntherha the dancers, bands, and for the purposes (Alkchkh) only, and after tracing the sources of these rates shows that the pioneers of entertainment they buy from certain people, when arrested one of them, he bought from someone else does not know anything about him except the exercise sell counterfeit money, and we follow up on it now, either to talk about tuning Press-handed printing of counterfeit currency and got so far, I do not think that counterfeit currency can pass easily to any citizen because of poor paper type, colors used and the image of water (for HP) and personal history, there is a clear difference, and can be considered as things in control of it, dangerous truth is to become a significant digits, the most important thing that could be adopted now is the statistical tables of the Central Bank because the bank deposits and government civil go to the central treasury, and we have a plan with banking offices in case of counterfeit currency have included Alabaran source currency or promoter has, after that they were to Aestelmunha and Ergonha to its owner, which may replace it in another place.
