KUCHING: Fake Covid-19 vaccination certificates are not being sold in Sarawak thus far and police want to keep it that way.
The assurance came from Sarawak police commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail when contacted on Wednesday (Jan 19).
According to him, surveillance and monitoring conducted by Sarawak police have found no traces of such activities being carried out in the state.
He added there were also no reports by civilians on the issue of fake Covid-19 vaccine certificates.
“So far, no case of fake vaccination certificate sale has been detected in Sarawak,” he declared.
However, he said his men would continue their monitoring to ensure its continued absence in Sarawak.
Aidi also asked the public to keep an eye out for the illicit activity and to channel all related information to police.
Recently, a doctor made headlines after Terengganu police busted a ring believed to be selling fake vaccination certificates, with more than 1,900 such documents confiscated.
The Terengganu commercial crime department said they arrested a doctor at a private clinic in Marang. Six others were detained soon after.
More than 5,600 names of people believed to have been fraudulently registered on the MySejahtera system were also found in laptops confiscated by Selangor police last week.
Following this, four men and three women were arrested after a raid on a clinic.
