The agency said that it was the largest quantity of counterfeit money that has ever been seized in the country.

The suspects were ultimately identified by Gendarmerie officials inside a storage facility in the Istanbul area of Kagithane following a drawn-out military search.

A significant amount of phoney currency worth a total of $1,000,000 was found to be unlawfully being smuggled into African nations as a consequence of the investigation.

During the operation, a substantial quantity of fake currency with a total worth of $1,000,000 that was meant for African countries was discovered.

Law enforcement officials searched the suspects’ houses after the raid, and as a result, they were able to seize cash and jewellery that they believed to be connected to the illicit activities.

The Swedish and Ghanaian consulates, according to the report, were promptly informed of the arrests and the ongoing investigation.
