The Judiciary Police (PJ) announced yesterday that two local men – a father and son – and a male mainlander have been arrested for their involvement in an alleged scam in which an education centre had fraudulently obtained 3.1 million patacas in continuing education subsidies from the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (DSEJ) by asking at least 200 residents if they could borrow their ID cards and used then to enrol in courses that did not exist.

PJ spokesman Leng Kam Lon made the announcement during a regular press conference yesterday.

The Education and Youth Affairs Bureau is currently running the third phase of its continuing education subsidy scheme, which entitles local residents aged at least 15 to get a 6,000 pataca subsidy to enrol in courses run by the city’s various continuing education institutions until the end of 2019. The subsidy scheme is officially known as “Continuing Education and Development Programme”.
