Three vehicle examiners and a cashier from a vehicle testing station in Musina, Limpopo, have been arrested by the local police as they allegedly issued false roadworthy certificates for vehicles.
According to the investigation that took months of Hawks’ work, four suspects did not test dozens of cars but instead generated documents on them by using the identity particulars of a 60-year-old man. The report showed that the elderly resident was totally unaware of those incidents.
During the arrest, the anticrime unit also seized officials’ equipment, including computers and all additional paperwork.
Meanwhile, the alleged perpetrators are expected to appear in the Musina Magistrates’ court on charges of fraud and corruption. The first hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
