Zimbabwe police bust fake ID production ring
Zimbabwean police have busted a ring that was producing fake identity cards in the capital Harare, the Registrar General’s Office said on Wednesday.
In a statement, the department said an unknown number of people were recently arrested following a tip-off from members of the public.
“The Registrar General security got a tip-off about criminals who were printing fake national identity documents and sought the assistance of the police to arrest the culprits,” the statement said.
The department called on companies and other institutions to be vigilant when it comes to accepting identity documents.
It encouraged “individuals and the corporate world to verify with the department on any civil registration documents whose authenticity they are not satisfied with.”
