Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Jakarta Metropolitan Police have named six foreign nationals as suspects in an alleged case of falsifying documents to open bank deposit accounts.

Among the suspects were two from Russia, two from Latvia, one from Libya and one from Italy, Director of Criminal Investigation of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police, Senior Commissioner Krishna Murti, said here on Saturday.

The case came to the light after the police received a tip-off from state lender Bank Mandiri where a Libyan national identified by his initials as AI had opened a deposit account using a forged document.

According to the bank, AI opened a deposit account in the bank under the name of IM and AC but used the same photograph as AI.

Krishna said the suspects have falsified documents to open deposit accounts in several banks in Jakarta, including Bank Mega, Bank Mandiri, BII, OCBC, BCA and BRI.

"They opened the accounts to deposit the money that they had stolen," he said. (*)
