Two Netanya residents were arrested on Tuesday after police concluded an investigation concerning document forgery. Michael Levitin and Vladmir Sakloski are suspected of producing forged Israeli passports and identification cards and selling them through the Internet. Assisted by Russian authorities, Israel Police tracked down the two men and later conducted searches of their homes. Police found falsified Interior Ministry documents such as passports, photocopied identification cards and official documents belonging to the High Court of Justice. Levitin and Sakloski were remanded for three days by the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court for further investigation.
