Kedah cops probe fake certs case


ALOR SETAR: The sale of fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates has also been detected in Kedah, with an investigation focusing on whether it involved doctors at a government clinic or private clinic.

State health and local government committee chairman Datuk Dr Mohd Hayati Othman said a probe was underway.

“At present, I cannot reveal whether this case involves a government doctor or one at a private health centre.

“This case is still under investigation by police and the state Health Department,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama after the state executive council meeting here yesterday.

The investigation, he said, would also try to identify if the sale was linked to any syndicate operating in other states.

On Tuesday, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Razarudin Husain said police have received reports from four states where private clinics were caught selling such certificates.

The states are Selangor, Terengganu, Johor and Kelantan.
