NICOSIA (Reuters) – You might have the best forgery skills in the world, but it is not much use if you cannot spell.

A Cyprus court jailed Pakistani national Fazal Ur Rehman for eight months for forgery after police spotted spelling mistakes on stamps on an Afghan passport he was carrying — otherwise it was a near-perfect copy, the Cyprus Mail said Wednesday.

“Ministry” was spelled “Menistry” and the first “n” was missing from government, the newspaper said.

“The passport looked perfect and professionally made … almost deemed original by forensics,” a police officer told a magistrate in the Cypriot capital Nicosia.
