...running the scams and crime capers our own home grown criminals are too lazy to run:
Two brothers, Stefan and Sorin Covrig, and a third man, Ciprian Buda, were the manufacturers of the tickets.
They used blank tickets, card readers, computer programs and printers to produce fake tickets on a massive scale.
When their homes were raided officers seized nearly 60,000 blank tickets, which if turned into counterfeits would fetch up to £20million.
After months of investigating the group, officers moved to arrest phase, raiding homes in London and Leicester and arresting Silva, Sorin Covrig and Buda.
A joint operation with Romanian Police tracked down Stefan Covrig in his native Romania.
Ah, Romania. Are there any crooks left in the country?
Seven Romanian nationals accused of conspiring to burglary and one man who is said to have acted as a “fence” to conceal the group’s illegal products appeared on trial at Kingston Crown Court to face the charges.
Gavril Popinciuc, Vasille Paragina, Marian Albu, Traian Mihulca, Marian Mamaliga, Ilie Ungureanu, Liviu Leahu deny conspiracy to commit burglaries and conspiracy to disguise and remove criminal property.
Mohammed Enus, the accused “fence”, denies conspiracy to disguise and remove criminal property and handling stolen goods.
Two Romanian burglars drilled through a bookmakers into an upmarket jewellers to steal £300,000 worth of gems while a half-marathon masked the noise, a court heard.
Florin-Cristin Neagu, 46, and Sorin Munteanu, 44, allegedly dug into the basement of George Attenborough & Son on London's Fleet Street before fleeing the country.
Thanks, freedom of movement!
Ah yes, but they produce such charming ethnic food to brighten our dull English lives!....just what exactly do Romanians eat?....besides big macs.
I do hope these scumbags are deported back to Romania after serving their sentences.
When our justice system is all in favour of the offender any criminal would want to be in UK. Free lawyer,up to 30 convictions before you might, just might, get a short soft jail sentence. Hundreds of your potential victims demonstrating against your deportation. You can even claim benifits while you rape and pillage the people around you. Better yet never any police in sight WOW what a place to be a criminal! Just don't forget to get a TV licence, seems the police are a bit hot on that.
That's cultural self enrichment for you.
