Police also seized one kilogram of cocaine as part of their investigation which lasted six months, it said.

The passports, which were stolen, were sent to Thailand where they were altered and falsified with the aim of facilitating people trafficking, mainly into Japan.

Police detained 25 members of the ring, including the leader who was identified as 28-year-old Hosein K, in Thailand.

One person was arrested in Japan. Police said he received the people who travelled with the fake documents provided by the ring to Tokyo and then transported them to other parts of the country.

Six of the people were arrested at Bangkok airport as they tried to board flights to Japan with fake papers provided by the ring.
