ALOR SETAR: The sale of fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates has been detected in Kedah, says state Health and Local Government Committee chairman Datuk Dr Mohd Hayati Othman.

He said an investigation was underway to identify whether the sale of the certificates was done by doctors at a government or private health clinic.

“This case is still under investigation by police and the state Health Department,” he said after a state executive council meeting here on Wednesday (Jan 19).

He said the investigation would attempt to identify whether the sale of fake vaccination certificates was linked to any syndicate operating in other states.

On Tuesday (Jan 18), Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Razarudin Husain said police had received reports from four states so far, namely Selangor, Terengganu, Johor and Kelantan regarding private clinics selling fake vaccination certificates.

On Jan 8, Terengganu police arrested a doctor at a private clinic on suspicion of issuing fake Covid-19 vaccine certificates in Marang. – Bernama
