Three people have been arrested for allegedly issuing unroadworthy vehicles with licences at testing stations across Cape Town.
Arrests were made in a sting operation led by the Hawks, with the Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works on Wednesday.
Two were arrested in Epping, while the other was caught in Mitchells Plain.
A fourth person from Goodwood is expected to hand himself over to the police.
According to Hawks spokesperson, Captain Philani Nkwalase, the operation began after an April incident where three vehicles transporting school children were declared unroadworthy.
I was found that the same vehicles had been issued with roadworthy certificates just days later, without the faults being rectified.
The roadworthy examiners were charged with fraud and corruption and are expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate Court on Thursday.
