Bahrain: Fraudsters allegedly charge fines for not wearing masks

A group of fraudsters are allegedly charging fines from labourers for not wearing masks across areas in Manama. 

Sources say these fraudsters disguise themselves as either members of Central Investigation Department (CID) or Health Ministry staff and threaten the laborers of putting them behind bars in case of not paying fines. 

Out of fear, they pay fines which are normally between BD5 and BD10. These frauds only target innocent laborers as they are mostly unaware of changes in Covid-19 rules and regulations.
