Gauteng police have arrested four suspects for manufacturing fake documents which include driving licences and identity documents on Tuesday.

The four, all Zimbabweans, operated from their bases in Ivory Park, Tembisa.

Road Transport Motor Corporation (RTMC) said that the four were arrested by members of the National Traffic Anti – Corruption Unit (NTACU), National Traffic Police High-Speed Unit and South African Police Services after they received a tip-off from members of the public.

“Information was received about Zimbabwean nationals who were suspected to be running an illegal operation. According to the information received, the suspects were allegedly manufacturing fake driving licenses and asylum permits among others,” stated RTMC in a statement.
