Certificate fakers could be jailed


Around 30 people have been warned they could be facing prison time for their part in faking Covid certificates.

The first arrests were back in October last year when 4 were discovered selling the documents at the Clinique des Grangettes. There’s no suggestion the clinic was aware of their activity.

Police suggest there may be more arrests to follow. 

So far 470 purchasers of the fakes have been found. They could also face charges. 

It’s uncertain how much money was handed over for the fakes, but some were sold for several hundred francs.
