The men were arrested at around 02:00 at the Beyers Naude offramp on the N1, Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.

"The suspects took officers to two containers in Extension 15 Zandspruit where they used computers to manufacture fake passports, fake [SA Revenue Services] documents and asylum papers," he said.
