On the border with Hungary, border guards found a forged consent for taking a child abroad
Border guards of the Chop detachment once again prevented the attempt to illegally take a minor child from Ukraine abroad.
Thus, yesterday our compatriot, traveling to Italy with his son born in 2004, arrived at the checkpoint "Tisa". For the border control, along with passports, the man submitted the mother's consent to take a minor boy abroad issued at the Consulate General of Ukraine in Milan. However, during further examination of the documents, the border guards found out that the submitted consent was invalid because it contained signs of forgery.
The border guards sent to the National Police of Transcarpathia a report about a possible criminal offense under Article 358 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine "Counterfeiting of documents, seals, stamps and forms, their sale, use of forged documents".
The father and his child were handed over to the police for questioning and follow-up investigation.
The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reminds you, if your child goes abroad without parents, or accompanied by only one parent, a notarized permission of the parents is required. To receive such a document, one has to contact any Ukrainian notary, or, if the parents are abroad, consular offices of Ukraine.
