Agents of the Policia Nacional have arrested two men aged 40 and 45 years, a child aged 17 years and a woman aged 20 years at Cesar Manrique de Lanzarote Airport who tried to take a flight to London by identifying themselves with false French passports.
Airport police were alerted when the passports presented lacked the correct security measures and indicated they were all falsely claiming to be of French nationality. The adults of legal age were arrested, detained and presented to court authorities, and the child classed as a minor was taken to the Children’s Section of the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Las Palmas.
