The Minister for Transport and Energy, Joel Biggie Matiza said that the Vehicle Inspectorate Department would soon be deployed to fuel queues to seize unregistered vehicles.
In an interview with Newsday on Thursday, Matiza said
People were given a deadline and those that complied have no reason to be scared. We are after those that have failed to regularise their licenses as required by the law. Beginning today (yesterday), we will have officers inspecting all fuel queues to check vehicle registration and related issues.
… The latest move will also help us deal with those using unregistered vehicles as conduits to hoard fuel for resale on the black market.
