Police are investigating the alleged forgery of Interpol certificates of good conduct by labour export firm Premier Recruitment Ltd, linked to tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia and son Rajiv.
The investigations followed a tip-off by Entebbe Airport authorities on a group of Ugandans that were recently traveling to the Middle East for work only to be found in possession of fake certificates.
They reportedly numbered 76 and were all linked to Premier Recruitment Ltd.
They were sent back to Kampala pending clearance before they could travel.
Police want to know how they obtained them and the racket behind.
A certificate of good conduct, also known as a police clearance certificate, is an official document issued by a police or government agency of a country to enumerate any criminal records that the applicant may or may not have.
Applicants often submit biometric data to request a criminal record check at a cost of shs80000. If no record is found, the police certificate which specifies your interests will indicate as such.Premier Recruitment Ltd officials could not be reached for a comment by press time.
This is not the first time the same labour export firm has been cited in forgery incidents.
In 2021, security officers at Entebbe International Airport had to remove 40 migrant workers aboard Qatar Airways flight before take-off over fake COVID-19 vaccination cards.
The migrant workers who were all under Premier Recruitment Ltd, had already boarded the Qatar Airways aircraft but were asked to disembark from the plane.
They could not be allowed to leave the country.
Saudi Arabia then required arriving passengers to present a negative PCR COVID-19 test certificate and full vaccination against COVID-19.
As a result, the migrant workers were returned to the company’s head office in Kampala pending retesting and clearance.
