Thai police have broken up a major fake passport ring led by an Iranian known as "The Doctor" which sent thousands of passports to Middle Eastern customers trying to enter Europe, officers said Wednesday.It was not immediately clear if "The Doctor" provided passports to people fleeing to Europe during the current migrant crisis.Jafary's fake passports were the "best quality in the market", an immigration officer who asked not to be named told AFP.Thousands of passports are reported missing annually in Thailand, where forged documents of every variety can be purchased on the streets.In 2010 Thai authorities took part in an international police sting that saw two Pakistanis and a Thai woman arrested in Thailand for providing fake passports to groups behind global terror attacks.
