Jail for Albanian national with false documents

By Ashleigh McDonald

An Albanian national who was caught trying to board a ferry from Belfast to Scotland using a false identification document has been jailed for three months.

Konstantino Anthnasopoulos had £2,000 in cash and was intending to make a fresh start in Edinburgh when he was detained by the Immigration Authorities.

Belfast Magistrates Court heard Anthnasopoulos (25) had paid 600 euros in Greece for the ID card, which subsequently proved to be a fake.

A representative from the PPS said the Albanian man was detained by Immigration Officers as he was about to board a ferry in Belfast bound for Scotland last Sunday.
