Judicial case in Uruguay reveals thousands of falsified documents

Judicial case in Uruguay reveals thousands of falsified documents

Montevideo, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) The investigations into the accused and detained former head of the security detail of the President of Uruguay, Alejandro Astesiano, found thousands of forged documents, including identity cards and passports.

This was part of the investigation carried out by prosecutor Gabriela Fosseti and the leadership of the National Directorate of Civil Identification (DNIC), where Astesiano worked 20 years ago, allegedly at the head of a network that provided false documentation to Russian citizens.

DNIC authorities denounced at least 60 cases in which Russian citizens accessed Uruguayan identity cards and passports through false documentation, managed by the criminal group of the former trusted man of President Luis Lacalle Pou.

The prosecutor said the doctored documents could number in the thousands.

According to the newspaper El País, back in 2019 a director of the DNIC requested to increase the security of the institution to neutralize forgery attempts.
