A 35-year-old hairdresser and a 47-year-old taxi driver and two others were caught producing fake government documents for foreign workers in their Sri Suajaya apartment in Kg Bandar Dalam, Sentul. The syndicate, which was operating for over a year, was busted when police raided the premises last Friday.

Police seized 57 foreign worker registration cards, 20 temporary work permits, 14 multiple entry visas and 16 Indonesian passports, all believed to be fake. A computer, three printers, two Malaysian and Indonesian Immigration Department rubber stamps and three MyKads without microchips were also taken.

It is believed that the first two suspects would meet their customers during their work while the other two acted as runners. A passport would typically cost RM100.

Police are investigating if the syndicate has other similar operations in the Klang Valley.
