THE news of a 51-years-old medical practitioner who was arrested in Marang، Terengganu after being suspected to be involved in a syndicate selling fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates on Jan 10 definitely caused a stir in Malaysia.

The activity of selling fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates are not at all shocking to the public as Malaysians are known to be creative in any situation.

What’s more disappointing is that، the culprit who is from the medical field himself، committed such fraudulent actions، merely to lure the public into thinking that they don't have to take the vaccine shots when he is the one who should be educating the public.

However، the actions of those involved in the syndicate will be closely monitored by the police.

The Inspector-General of Police، Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah in a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday (Jan 12) said that he have instructed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) to conduct intelligence work and detect those selling fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates.

Acryl Sani said، that the police is looking at the sales of fake certificates، ، whether it was done by an individual or group، seriously.

On Tuesday (Jan 11)، the director of Bukit Aman CCID، Datuk Kamaruddin Md Din informed، said to date، only one case of promoting the sale of fake vaccines were detected so far.
