A round of false driving licenses was discovered in South Tyrol. Or rather, the tip of the iceberg has been discovered of a system that could have wider ramifications. The carabinieri of Brunico denounced a sixty-two year old local in a state of freedom for the hypothesis of the crime of false material. It all started with a 60-year-old motorist, also from the area, who was received by the Carabinieri as he was doubtful about the genuineness of his driving license.
According to Ansa reports, “the man had suffered the revocation of his driving title a few years ago but wanted to start driving his car again. Then he had turned to an acquaintance who had promised him a very regular Polish driving license, according to him. The sixty-year-old had therefore paid out a few thousand euros and received an apparently genuine Polish driving license, but without going to Warsaw to take the exam. The man had never used it but felt cheated and told the whole story to the carabinieri, who reported to the Bolzano prosecutor’s office. In the house of the acquaintance who had sold him the document, the carabinieri not only found another false Polish driving license in the name of a person residing in the province, but also other compromising documents. The military suspects that the thriving Polish driving license business has been going on for some time“.
The beginning of this investigation has already produced its first effects. The driver’s license procurer was denounced in a state of freedom, with the hypothesis of the crime of material forgery committed by the private individual (the penalty is up to two years of imprisonment). The Carabinieri have invited all local residents who have ‘foreign driving licenses’ to hand them over, because it is very likely that they are also false. Despite good faith, in fact, these licenses would at first glance be fraudulent without the need for further checks.
