Testers bust for fraud

2013-12-11 00:00

VEHICLE examiners who worked at the testing station that passed the truck that killed 24 people in the Field’s Hill tragedy were arrested in a sting operation yesterday.

“Through undercover operatives we sent defective vehicles into the centre, which they passed after the suspects were paid off. A third staff member arrested was, we believe, the runner and he would hand over the money to the examiner,” said Pillay.
