Two, including political party chief, charged over fake docs syndicate

Two individuals, including the president of a Sabah-based party, were charged at a Shah Alam Magistrate's Court today over their alleged roles in a syndicate supplying fake Malaysian identification documents to those who are stateless.

In revealing this, Home Minister Hamzah Zainuddin said he had acted on a tip-off from an unidentified non-Malaysian living abroad and instructed Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani to assemble a special unit within Bukit Aman that led to the duo's arrests on June 22 in Subang Jaya.

The two individuals charged under Section 420 of the Penal Code for committing fraud were identified as Parti Perpaduan Rakyat Sabah (PPRS) president Mohd Arshad Abdul Mualap and Mohamad Amkah Ahmad.
