Pair in the dock for forging rebate letters

Story by Fungai Jachi

Two suspected fraudsters who allegedly forged rebate letters to import vehicles have been hauled before the courts answering charges of fraud.

In a bid to evade paying duty on imported vehicles, the duo of Hazel Mafu, aged 32 and Emmanuel Nyagano (25) is alleged to have forged rebate letters, which they used to import cars from various countries.

It is alleged that the pair used the same modus operandi to import four vehicles before they were caught.

The arrest of the duo comes after several car dealers have been nabbed by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission for allegedly importing vehicles using fake civil service rebate letters.

ZACC and the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority have joined forces to curb the abuse of tax rebates extended to civil servants by the government for them to import vehicles duty-free.

The two agencies have seized 36 vehicles since the operation was launched last month.
