WESTERN CAPE – Two vehicle examiners were arrested last week Friday in Butterworth by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation Unit arrested for alleged corruption.
The two suspects aged 25 and 40, are alleged to part of a wider group that is responsible for the fraudulent certification of roadworthy permits in the Western Cape.
The Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation team in collaboration with the Western Cape Department of Transport have already arrested nine (9) suspects linked to the alleged syndicate which has been operating in Cape Town, Butterworth and Queenstown.
The duo is expected to appear at Bellville Magistrates court today facing a charge of fraud and corruption. More arrests are expected pending the on-going investigation.
