VIDEO: Pakistani fake passport kingpin and 30 others get arrested during raid at Krugersdorp Home Affairs office

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that a Pakistani man behind fake passport and 30 others have been arrested during raid at Krugersdrop Home Affairs office, Friday, February 25, 2022. (Read More Here).


Motsoaledi has confirmed the news to pressmen in a statement. An SABC news, Mthethwa, confirmed the nationality of the fake passport kingpin and the arrest of 30 people more. 

She says: "A Pakistani kingpin allegedly behind a syndicate falsifying passport documents was arrested in a late night sting operation. Home Affairs and the hawks raid a home affairs office in Krugersdorp where 30 suspects were arrested. #FakePassportRaid Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi says the alleged kingpin is married to a South African who stays in Eldorado Park and he suspects he married her just to get permanent residency in Sa."

That official handed the two people and their passports to police. Motsoaledi says:

“The police worked with the department’s counter-corruption branch to get to the bottom of this. Their investigations led them to the alleged kingpin who has businesses in Gauteng. They spent time observing how the syndicate operated.”

“This kingpin was working with corrupt officials of home affairs in a network that spanned Gauteng, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Mpumalanga. The kingpin was arrested together with two home affairs officials who are allegedly his trusted lieutenants.”

The alleged kingpin was in possession of R45,000 in cash when he was arrested.

“Once the number of foreign nationals and South Africans matched he would activate his lieutenants, who would secure an office from where they would conduct their treasonous acts,” said Motsoaledi.  

“Once inside the office, one lieutenant would authenticate the applications using his fingerprints. The other lieutenant would process the applications in the system.”

“The lieutenants are said to have pocketed between R5,000 and R10,000 per passport while the kingpin allegedly charged anything from R40,000 from any foreign national who wanted to acquire a passport for which they don’t qualify.”

“Law enforcement officers have received sworn statements from people who participated in the syndicate and have turned state witnesses.

“I detest corruption. Our fight against corruption would not be as successful if we did not receive tip-offs from members of the public about acts of corruption conducted by some of our officials with whom they interact. I want to reassure the patriots who tip us off about malfeasance that we follow each tip and act decisively," Motsoaledi ended.
