A Pakistani citizen has been arrested in Spain for allegedly forging passports for the Laskar e Taiba (LeT) as well as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

"The National Police in Barcelona have arrested a citizen of Pakistani nationality for their alleged connection with the cell dismantled last December as part of "Operation Kampai" and who allegedly supplied documents for terrorist organizations linked to Al Qaeda, mostly " Laskar e Taiba (LeT) and other terrorist groups such as the LTTE," the Spanish Interior Ministry said in a statement.

It revealed that the detained person was Imtanan Malik Sarwar, born on January 13, 1981 in Sialkot (Pakistan) "and home in Barcelona. The detainee had since last December (when it was conducted "Operation Kampai '''') missing, so the Central Court... issued an arrest warrant against him for a crime of terrorism."

The Spanish Interior Ministry said the modus operandi of the loose network was "largely based on the theft of travel documents (passports mainly), which met the requirements (age, nationality, etc.)."

"Marked by the "World Islamic Front" to terrorist organizations linked to Al Qaeda, and their transfer to Thailand, where he was faking to be delivered later to terrorist groups and organized crime, allowing the components of these groups across the borders of Europe and other Western countries with impunity," it added.

The entire 'international structure was led by a Pakistani national citizen' living in Thailand arrested in December, who directed the cells settled in Europe, marked the features of passports to obtain and, once received in Bangkok, they were supplied to terrorist groups, the statement said.

The ministry noted that this operation led to neutralising an important cell facilitation of passports for al Qaeda, as the 'counterfeiting apparatus' of this international organization was weakened and, therefore their operational capacity. (ANI)

    this fellow is a document faker, he would sell to anybody if the price is high and the risk is low, even a passport to Sri Lankan defense ministry for Karuna.
