Impersonating officials, forging signatures, illegal receipts and seals [Archives:2004/721/Local News]

March 18 2004

Compelled by the economic crisis and the absence of religious and moral deterrents. For two years, Essam Qassem Ahmed, prior to his arrest in Al-Qahera province, Taiz City, had been able to collect all kinds of fees by impersonation officials working for the Department of Duties and Taxes of Ministry of Finance. He carried out many frauds and impersonation operations and collected fees by issuing fake receipts with forged signatures of employees and fake seals of the Authority.
The Yemen Times has copies of some of the forged receipts.
