Taxi Driver Cries Persecution by NTA Officers
29 February 2012 - The Défi Media Group
Imran Gheesah operates in the cab of his father recently. He cries persecution by officers of the NTA, and argues that they forced him to admit he does not operate in the region where it is supposed to operate.
In the presence of his lawyer, he said that the officers gave another version of their accusations.
He is desperate to avenge the insult that the officers of the NTA did to him. Imran Gheesah alleges that since last October, he is harassed by officers of the NTA. He also said that, they forced him to admit he was not working at his usual place either in lieu of taxis where he used to operate from returning home.
"Upon my return in September 2010, I started working in my father's car as a driver. By mid-October, two officers of the NTA came to my house to give me a first 'warning' on the complaint of a taxi driver to me, "says the driver. He thus maintains that his explanation to the officers were in vain.
"Convened on November 24 at the NTA, they told me I had to explain before a disciplinary committee. They also told me that my license could be taken from me operation if I was not working at my usual place seven days a week although they knew that for a living, I often had to travel, "says he.
Intimidation In his absence, Imran revealed that his brother, who is also a taxi driver, also operated in the car of their late father. Moreover, he argues that his 'registration certificate' was issued May 4, 2011. "On November 25, an officer came to make a site visit. And to his surprise, I was on the role of taxis, "he said.
Summoned again with his mother at the NTA, Imran said that the officers of the institution said that complaints had been struck against him and "that it was futile to proceed with the case." "These officers have even dared to contact my mother try not to go further in the matter because they had committed an "error in the NTA."
But do you believe that mistakes of this kind are eligible within an institution such as the NTA? Moreover, all these eddies have brought me a few days of hospitalization due to health problems, "the man revolts. This is at least one of the reasons that led him to institute legal proceedings against the NTA.
The “Main Road Inspector” in the NTA has gotten wind of the affair. "You know, the NTA, it is not persecuting anyone. The complainant is free to do whatever he wants, "he said."Since we do not communicate information to journalists, it's all I can tell you," he said.
"To my knowledge, the officers of the NTA have agreed to close the case . But this is not the case with my client. I must consult him to see what arguments he intends to put forward to initiate proceedings against the NTA, "said the lawyer of I. Gheesah.
