Two Nigerians, who had been involved in producing fake Dollar notes and posing as investors, have been remanded.
The two Nigerians had arrived in Trincomalee duped businessmen providing them with face dollar notes. Those who were swindled by the Nigerians told the Police that they possessed some black paper which was converted into Dollar notes by the application of a certain chemical. The Police were able to recover a stock of the paper used to produce dollar notes and the chemical during a raid conducted based on the complaints. The suspects were remanded until the 17th of this month, after they were produced before the Trincomalee Magistrate.
