RTMCTimeslive reports that four employees of a private vehicle testing station were due on Monday to appear in the Johannesburg Commercial Crimes Court for allegedly fraudulently issuing vehicle roadworthy certificates.  

The four - two men and two women – were arrested at the Lincoln vehicle testing station by a team consisting of the Road Traffic Management Corporation’s (RTMC’s) National Traffic Anti-Corruption Unit and others.  Simon Zwane‚ spokesperson for the RTMC, said the arrests followed months of investigation in which the four were observed issuing roadworthy certificates for vehicles that were not physically presented to the station for inspection.  He added that more than 60 people‚ including traffic officers‚ SAPS members and vehicle examiners‚ have been arrested in different provinces on fraud and corruption charges since the start of the year.
