“We have detected nine cases since last month in several states including Terenggani, Selangor and Sabah. Most of the investigations are almost complete.

“There are also other cases connected to this issue as well,” he told reporters.

He added, the latest case involved the sale of fake certificates in Kinarut, Sabah just last week.

One of the clinic employees lodged a police report alleging that a doctor was selling fake certificates. The 37-year-old doctor was detained at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 7th.”

Well done, PDRM! How irresponsible of these people selling fake vaccine certificates…

If you had to go through all that trouble to get a fake COVID-19 vaccination certificate, might as well just get the vaccine.
