Corrupt Home Affairs Officials Panick as Police Arrest Lady with 14 New Asylum Papers and R67,000.

Despite the warning issued to corrupt Home Affairs Officials on daily basis with respect to issuing South African documents to unqualified individuals, it seems these scrupulous elements are hell bent on engaging in criminal activities.

In an emerging report, Police in Pretoria West have successfully arrested a lady who was in possession of 14 ready-to-be-issued asylum documents gotten directly from Home Affairs on Thursday.

The suspect was apprehended in Maltzan Street near Luttig Street.

Constable Sibongile Vuma who is the police spokesperson, during his statement said that when the woman was interrogated on what she was doing with the documents and blank home affairs papers, she allegedly admitted that they were fraudulent.

Vuma added that the lady said that foreign nationals, who are already on the home affairs database, pay the sum of R600 to get the documents,while those who are not yet on the database pay R1, 200 or more to get theirs.

Vuma further stated that the police could not confirm whether the documents were authentic as at the time of gathering this information.

“Home affairs will have to confirm their authenticity. The suspect was also found in possession of R67 700, which was also confiscated as evidence. The money was booked for further investigation."

Vuma said the suspect will be arraigned in Pretoria magistrate court on one count charge of fraud.

Police appealed to the community to inform them of any illegal dealings in their policing area.

“There is no place for criminals to do their criminal activities in our precinct. We will no stone unturned.”
