Kenyan Police Seize $20m Fake Dollars From Nairobi Bank

Police in Kenya say they have arrested six people after seizing fake currency worth more than $20m from a branch of Barclays Bank in the capital, Nairobi.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations says the fake notes in 100 dollar denominations were recovered from the bank’s safe room.

Among the six arrested on Tuesday were the alleged owner of the box, a “fake investor” and two bank officials.

In a statement, Barclays says that a customer who held a personal safe deposit box at its Queensway branch had been “intercepted by Police at the branch”.

The customer had “concealed fake currency in his personal safe deposit box against bank rules and regulations”, Barclays said, adding that it was cooperating with investigations.
