A 28-year-old Albanian national was arraigned before the courts today accused of being in possession of forged documents.

Erjon Sala, who resides in the Albanian capital, Tirana, was accused of using a forged Romanian identity card. When arrested, the man said he had wanted to travel to Dublin for work. He cooperated with the police and told them he had bought the documents from a person in Albania for a price of €400.
