Taxi driver required to regularly report to police authority

The court has accepted the prosecution authority’s suggestion and ordered a taxi driver, who lodged a false accusation with the police, to regularly report to the police, according to a statement released by the Public Prosecutions Office yesterday. On January 25, the taxi driver lodged a false accusation against some passengers after they refused to be overcharged. Four passengers got into his vehicle at Cotai to go to the Border Gate. The driver asked for MOP300 for the trip, but his request was declined. The local driver then returned his vehicle to the pick-up spot and left it to go to the bathroom. In his absence, the passengers took down his license information and left. The driver later called the police, saying that they had stolen his license and MOP1,000. The suspect is in his 30s, and has 38 recorded infractions in the police system.
