Police seize forged Ethiopian, foreign currency notes
Addis Ababa, March 26 (WIC) - The Federal Police announced that a large sum of forged Ethiopian and foreign currency notes readied to be circulated in various parts of the country has been seized.
Crime investigator with the federal police, Inspector Michael Atsbeha told WIC that forged 100 and 50 Ethiopian birr notes, summed up to 153,450 birr, and 40,000 forged Sudanese pounds were among the fake cash notes seized by the police.
Inspector Michael also said that police are investigating cases of two suspects apprehended around Alem Bank area in Addis Ababa with fake money notes.
The suspects were apprehended with tip offs from the public.
One of the suspects had repeatedly been convicted of circulating forged money notes, Inspector Michael said, and added that the forged money noted seized in the hands of this suspect were meticulously produced and hard to be easily identified.
The crime of circulating forged money notes is expanding particularly in rural areas, Inspector Michael said, urging farmers to take maximum care and check the cash notes particularly when they carry out larger transactions.
In addition to the forged Ethiopian Birr notes, forged money notes of various countries including that of the American Dollars were seized during a surprise search made over the house of the suspect.
Some 40,000 Sudanese forged Pounds was among the fake money notes found during the search out, he added.
Inspector Michael called on the public to collaborate with police in the efforts of preventing the ever increasing crime of money forgery in the country.
The ex-coffee exporters must be the first suspects_when one cannot earn income legally one joins the criminals. Am I wrong?
God save us from the idiot melesas.
This is the tell tell signs of dyine regime….
This is not the first incedent in Ethiopia.in 1979 E.C some criminals treid to forged ethiopian birr..and people automatically discevered that there was somthing wrong on segniture on birr notes.orginal segnicher says “BEKELCH” but the forged birr not said “FELEKECH” so pelese people be careful.
And agin in 1996 Eritren made forged ethiopian birr not in Assab and Asmara smugled it to Ethiopia through Afar..and they svindeled many farmers in northern part of our country…please be careful…
GENZEB KALE BESEMAI MENGED ALE !!
Put those Greedy Ma**** in jail and never let them out.
I see this is the usual drama by the TPLF police so as to try and scare people from using the growing balck market in foreign currency exchange, the same way they have been ‘foiling bombs’ in Addis whenever they want to arrest the poor Oromos. This is a further sign of the extent to which the country is in shit foreign currency crises.
Mess in Ethiopia is forseen. This is another sign. Believe it or not, Ethiopia has not more than one more year to exist.
Victory to Oromia and Ogaden!
put those shit head where they belong but you must bit the hell out off them before you send them jail.
this idiot cancer heads moran kUNJIT PARTY are the one whom put ethiopia WEDEHUALA.GREFACHEWU GREFACHEWU.
This is a joint mission of Weyane and Nigerian mafias.Both of them are the same when we come to forgery, but not by killing.
“BEINKIRT LAY JORO DEGIF”
i am very sure this is the work of the greedy azeb, zenawi wife
Ethiopia will continue to face more problems but it will over come it.
It is the work of HODDAMS and SHABIA agents, No doubt about it.
. . .easy money for forged bills, easy to go jail. . .
. . .but those looter who looted us with our real money are walking freely and roaming around and continue looting day & night. . .
The suspect was convicted before for same crime, so it is not hard to trace the source and close the incident.
My question is how and why the person left free in spite of repeated records of suspect? Let us be ware as such action downturn the economy of the country.
In our country we have to learn one and important thing, i.e. feeding the public with information on type of possible crimes until we are sure information reached to the point of possible victim area. Guidline should be given how to identify type of possible crimes to stop the spread to other areas.
Furthermore such investigation should be dealt through specific professional investigator. I hope all medias would cooperate to save possible victim areas.
This forged note(birr) is created no other than TPLF gang and their friends.This is what Meles and his friends are good at.Meles and freinds greed.No No amout of money is enough for them.Meles has millions dollars all over the world in hide outs.Harding working coffee farmers are told who to sell their coffee to by Meles.When the farmers told Meles please allowed us to choice who to sell our coffee and when to sell….Meles threated them to cut their hands off.Why? Why not allowed these farmers choice what is the best for them?They work hard to produced coffee.why not allowed them to choice who to sell it too when they want to sell it?
The government of Ethiopia has every obligation to find the source and inform our people. The war waged against Ethiopia is not only by the use of military force, but it is also economic in nature. In such cases, there is usually a link with a foreign rouge power, which supports such illicit practices whenever possible or turns a blind eye to avoid taking any responsibility.
Internal rouge elements that may also be responsible should be disclosed and brought before the law, despite their status.
This is a continuing crime for sure done by Shabia leadership and other foreign participants.
Shabia and other Ethiopian Enemies tried everything to affect Ethiopia. Contrary to these evil wishes, Ethiopia is getting stronger and confident by day. Now, they are trying this way to affect her. Yet again, they will not succeed.
The Ethiopians’ spirit is not money but they themselves as the God loving and fearing beautiful people. Money is not their religion. Fore this reason, they will not be affected.
Quit scratching your rear and be thankful that we have well trained law enforcement agency that is able to deal with such crimes. What is clear is you and co are unable to understand what Ethiopia is up to and the challenges the nation is facing. Therefore, your comment is irrelevant and arrogant. We are however thankful to the authority for conductive this investigation and bringing those criminals to justice.
The suspect was out of jail and running free because he probably already had done the time for the original crime commented and the government could not do anything when he was released. That is called full democracy and the court will now have to decide how long the same suspect along with his accomplices will be locked up. It wouldn’t surprise me if these suspects spend an average of 10 yrs and come out again and fall in to that some criminal activity from Kenya or Somalia. Remember, these criminals don’t fear a thing; therefore, they will always do what they got busted with now and try to live that fast life by cheating and stilling from the poor. I hope the government will air this on all networks like radios, TV, news papers etc and educate the public well.
You better die with your stupid attitude.Everyone knows that this is your masters hobby.They steal real money and they fool the innocent people every time with fake money.
By the way which democracy are you talking about?That is why I say you better die than always lying all about greed.Get your share out of that country before everything seized ….
. . .and who will bring to the court with your master for his lootings and leba businesses?
. . .remember this is only a dust compared with your master boulder stones. . .
