Europol has warned that fake negative Covid-19 test certificates and documentation are being sold to people, enabling them to avoid travel restrictions, and have identified an Irish criminal gang as allegedly being involved.

The European law enforcement agency said it received intelligence on the alleged use of a mobile application by an Irish Mobile Organised Crime Group based in the south of the country, which allows for the manual falsification of test results.

It has said several cases of such fraudulent certificates being sold to travellers have already emerged…

    Sold to ‘travellers’ or to ‘Travellers’?

    RTÉ news changed that article because it mentions the ‘Rathkeale Rovers’ earlier.

    This is from the Jornal. “Europol said that one of the gangs carrying out these crimes is the Rathkeale Rovers organised crime group. Europol said it received additional intelligence on the “alleged use of a mobile application by the Rathkeale Rovers Mobile Organised Crime Group which allows members of the organised crime group to manually falsify test results”.
