He does not know where to go. It has been months that a person would use his identity card and driver's license. He alerted the authorities and still waiting. Meanwhile, things get worse ...
This is the police station in Curepipe Bradley reported that someone pretending to be him and uses his license.
Hi, Jean Marcel Mike Bradley. True. Because right now there are two. Two people who have the same ID number. The only thing that differs in this official document is the photo. Is this an administrative error or second Bradley Marcel he usurped the identity of the first? This is the question that arises, then he pays the consequences now. The Curepipe Police Station - where he complained - trying to solve this puzzle.
Bradley is a bus driver. It was in 2001 that the inhabitants of Rivière-dryer, Floreal, received his license. He and his father work together in a single bus makes the trip Quatre-Bornes - Flic-en-Flac. It was by chance, in 2012, he met one of the owners of another individual bus who informed him that someone else is using his driving license “Missié là konn mwa bien. Li dir mwa ki li ti pe rode ene chauffer et enn dimoun inn vine guet li et inn prezant so licence. Selma lor licence la ti ena dimoun la so photo mai ti ena mo nom ek no nimero carte identité..."says Bradley.
Since that day, he decides to go in search of this individual. "I have gleaned some information and was told that this person had been employed as a driver and that I could find at the station Curepipe. After several months of surveillance, I actually noticed. As soon as I approached him, he fled leaving the bus and left behind a wallet. To my surprise, I discovered that his identity card was identical to mine except for the picture, "he continues.
Bradley was immediately returned to the police station in Curepipe, but since no news of his actions. He claims to be also went to the central barracks to explain his case: "The first time I met a lady. She pulled my file and photo type contained therein. When I asked for an explanation, she told me it was probably a mistake and come back after 21 days. "That's what he did. According to him, he met someone who told him that the problem was solved by showing new file, but the picture he had seen before.
He thought that there was indeed a problem. But to his surprise, he received a ticket, then a second, its name, but for a bus that never led. "I am desperate. Two tickets arrived home and I'm sure not doing this trip at that time and have never been in this bus. I'll have to appear in court and begin lengthy procedures. All this makes me tired. Imagine what a mess I'd be if that person commits a more serious offense? "Laments he.
With the introduction of 'Driving Licence Counterpart ', it is even more worried. "I wonder if I have this document when I go introduce myself, or will they tell me that someone else has already made this paper for me?"
Challenge Daily interviewed Barracks plants. An officer advised Bradley to complain again and meet the head of the Traffic Branch to shed light on this matter.
