In a case going back almost three years, four Bulgarian nationals have been sentenced for passing a number of fake 500-euro notes at Monte-Carlo casino, French-language daily Monaco Matin reports.

The defendants were arrested at the Monaco Monte-Carlo train station in March, 2016, and two of the four have been locked up awaiting trial since that date.

The youngest of the accused was acquitted, while the remaining three were sentenced to one, two and three years in prison. The court heard that the Monaco authorities had received a tip-off from the Italian financial police on March 9, 2016. The Bulgarians were suspected of using fake 500-euro bills to bet at San Remo’s casino before moving on to Monaco.
