Bid to end fraudulent activities

THE government is working with relevant stakeholders to see that fraudulent activities do not take place again in our bus system.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that in the past, teachers and students were found photocopying bus fare vouchers before selling them.

"We had a meeting with stakeholders last week and we are working with them to ensure that there is an e-ticketing system in buses which is agreeable to all the parties and proper laws are in place," he said.

"We have a draft decree already in place which has been circulated to the vendors or solution providers, Vodafone, Digicel and the Land Transport Authority for their feedback.

"We hope to receive their feedback in few days time before putting this law in place."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said suggestions were made by stakeholders to amend the draft.

He said this law essentially dealt with the standards that needed to be met in terms of various organisations and stakeholders working together.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said issues raised with the stakeholders included the overseas practice where people did not buy cards but bought the value in the card.

He said in this way, people would not be engaged in dirty practices again where vouchers were copied before being sold to students as done in the past.
