Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says it’s unfortunate some operators gave incorrect information to get provisional taxi permits that were issued over the weekend in Lautoka.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the perpetrators will now face the consequences if they don’t return the permits within the amnesty period which ends on the 21st of this month.
“Those people who made false declaration and received the provisional permit will no longer get the permit and similarly those people who may have missed out have the opportunity to get the permits but we have to go through the investigations and see what comes up from it.”
Meanwhile, LTA Board Chair Vijay Maharaj says LTA is working on verifying information provided by applicants from the two zones after more than a thousand five hundred permits were awarded last Saturday.
Maharaj says those found guilty will be charged under the False Information Act and will face not only stiff fines but possible imprisonment or both penalties.
