Cops on trail of fake drivers’ licence ring

Postby admin » Mon Jan 05, 2009 4:17 pm

MALACCA: The state Road Transport Department (JPJ) is believed to have crippled a syndicate forging driving licences here, following the arrest of a man at Bukit Katil last Friday.

The case came to light on Jan 2 when a department officer was approached by a member of the public complaining he had, in November, paid RM400 to a man who claimed he was a JPJ officer and could obtain a driving licence without going through the normal process.

Initial investigations showed that the 35-year-old man, who operated from a restaurant across the JPJ office, had also duped several others.

Several plainclothes enforcement officers later detained him and handed him over to the police for further investigation.

State department director Mohd Ismail Zawawi said the syndicate was believed to be led by a mastermind going by the name “Devan,” who impersonated a JPJ officer.

The syndicate charged between RM800 to RM1,500 for driving licences, depending on their class, he told reporters at his office here Monday.

He said members of the syndicate would request up-front payment of as much as half the cost of the licence.

He added that his department would cooperate closely with the police’s commercial crime department to nab the syndicate’s mastermind and his accomplices.
