The National Traffic Anti-Corruption Unit has broken up a major syndicate dealing in fraudulent roadworthy certificates that has been operating between the Eastern Cape and North West Province.
Three leaders of the syndicate were arrested last week when the Road Traffic Management Corporation’s (RTMC) Anti-Corruption Unit, in collaboration with the Hawks, pounced on a vehicle testing station in Port Elizabeth.
The three suspects will be transported to Brits, Gauteng where they will appear in court.
RTMC had been investigating the syndicate for over six months before the arrest.
Further investigations are still under way and more arrests are expected.
Members of the public are asked to get involved in helping keep all of SA’s roads safe.
Anyone with information on bribery and/or corruption at vehicle testing stations is asked to report cases on 086-140-0800
