Army Nabs Top Ain el-Hilweh Passport and Currency Forger

The most notorious passport and currency forger in the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp was arrested Wednesday in a special army operation.

“Following surveillance and follow-up, the Intelligence Directorate managed today to arrest Palestinian fugitive Hassan Nawfal, aka Hassan al-Hakim, and an accomplice,” the army said in a statement.

It described the detainee as “one of the most notorious forgers of passports, identity cards and foreign and local currencies.”

An investigation has since been launched under the supervision of the judiciary.
