The defendants decided to produce and sell false Hungarian passports in 2015, when many criminal groups were selling Hungarian passports to non-EU citizens.
Defendants with Ukrainian-Hungarian dual citizenship obtained official identification papers for naturalised Hungarian citizens, which were then sold to foreigners for large sums of money.
The administrator of a government window in Pécs and another of a government window in Dunaharaszti assisted in the scheme.
Almost 50 counterfeit passports were issued between January 21 and March 22, 2016. Each sold for at least €6,000.
