LIMPOPO – The Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation unit, Road Traffic Management Corporation and Special Investigating Unit collaborative efforts to address fraud and corruption at vehicle testing stations in Limpopo has resulted in five additional arrests on Tuesday.
Five officials aged between 23 and 62, amongst them, three examiners and two cashiers were arrested at the Lephalale local vehicle testing station this morning.
The arrests comes hot in the heels of the capture of seven officials on Monday for allegedly using the identity particulars of unsuspecting victims to authorise roadworthy certificates for vehicles that were never physically subjected to mandatory tests.
The suspects are expected to make their first appearance at Lephalale Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday to face fraud and corruption charges along with the group that was arrested on Monday.
