December 29 2018 – FOUR Zimbabweans nationals have been arrested for submitting fraudulent documents during the City of Johannesburg’s security personnel insourcing project.
It is alleged that the suspects, who are all Zimbabwean, submitted fraudulent identity documents when they applied for the permanent positions with the City. They were arrested on Friday.
A statement from Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba’s office said it was established that one of the suspects used information of a deceased person and the other suspects’ fingerprints could not be validated.
One of the suspects recently approached the City Group Forensic and Investigation Department and indicated that their supervisor wanted money from them every month to keep quiet, and that he had now grown tired of this arrangement.
A sting operation was then set up by GFIS working together with the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) where the suspects were arrested. – ANA
