POLICE in PNG have changed the charge against a man accused of producing and distributing the Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination record cards, after reviewing the legislation they had used previously.
They had previously charged Allan Steven of uttering a false document and forgery under the Criminal Code Act. Now, he has been charged with impersonation under the National Pandemic Act 2020.
Steven, 38, of Keteve village, Okapa in Eastern Highlands appeared before Senior Magistrate Pious Tapil in the Lae Committal Court where he was informed of the change to the charge. Magistrate Tapil granted him bail for K2,000 and his two guarantors to pay surety fees of K200 each.
He told Steven that the bail conditions must be strictly followed as the offence was serious.
