Lebanon: INTERPOL training focuses on combating document fraud
October 19, 2018
The EU-supported organisation INTERPOL focused on the detection of fake and fraudulent travel documents to boost regional border security during a training course in Lebanon. Participants came from Cyprus, Jordan and Lebanon.
The three-day (9-11 October) course gave law enforcement officers from the Middle East and North Africa the skills and knowledge they need to identify individuals attempting to travel with forged documents.
Border control officers, security officials and forensic document examiners all took part in classroom and practical exercises, learning about the methods criminals use to forge and alter travel documents, as well as sharing their own expertise.
