The Judiciary Police have detained two men who manufactured counterfeit bank notes of 20 euros, in the Greater Lisbon area.

In a statement, PJ said that the counterfeit mill had been dismantled and the equipment used in the counterfeiting process had been seized, namely a hot stamping machine, a mould used in the stamping machine, a paper cutter, and a printer.

“The € 20 banknotes, some of which were seized in the manufacturing process, were suitable for misleading anyone, and more than two hundred were already in circulation,” the note said.
