Dubai Police seize illegal ‘magic pens’
Dubai, April 26, 2011
Dubai Police recently conducted raids on a number of shops in Dubai and seized an illegal China-made ‘magic pen’ used to create fake documents with its vanishing ink.
The police also sent a circular to UAE-based banks warning of the ‘magic pen’ which looks like a normal pen but whose ink vanishes after about one to four hours after writing, said a report in Gulf News.
“It seems that this pen entered into the country via an illegal method and is sold at low prices,” Brig Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, head of Criminal Investigation Department at Dubai Police, was quoted as saying in the report.
