I used to be shocked or surprised in the past upon reading news report such as the one below. Well that was then but not anymore. In fact I can assure you that most of us here in Sabah considered such cases of stolen identity as common as the common cold. It will come and caused you discomfort regardless of the rituals on personal hygiene that you rigorously observed.
I pity the poor fellow though. That the authorities had failed to solve his problem after so long shows the callousness and unsymphatetic attitude they have towards his predicament. Now that this has been publicised nationwide and through the Net, hopefully his problem will be settled expediently.
It should be remembered that we are already in the ninth year of the 21st century and should by now have in our disposal, a workable and systematic methods in curbing the usage of stolen and forged identity cards.
Below are excerpts the news article I am referring about.
Sabahan plagued by peninsula traffic fines.

KOTA KINABALU: Amzari Sapoh, 25, does not own or know how to ride a motorcycle but he has been slapped with arrest warrants for failing to settle his traffic summonses for the last three years.
Curiously, the summonses were all issued to him “for riding without a licence” in various states in Peninsular Malaysia when the Sabahan is a full-time clerk in a company here.
