Little Boy Racer Fakes Own Death

Shafkat Munir, 26, from Lancashire, England produced a false death certificate to the authorities to avoid paying £180 after speed cameras snapped him three times.

Munir's licence was clean before his spate of incidents and he would have still been able to drive.

He admitted to being foolish and perverting the course of justice, he was jailed last week for 12 months, and banned from driving for 18 months.

Munir was first caught speeding in January last year when doing 86mph on a 50mph stretch of the M55.

He was later snapped by a camera doing 56 mph in a 30mph zone in Blackpool.

The third time was in South Yorkshire, when he was doing 45mph in a 30mph zone.

A man claiming to be called Rashid Hussain contacted the parking office, claiming that Munir had died in Pakistan in 2002 in an incident not at all related in anyway to General Pervez Musharraf and his government and that can be backed up by the CIA if necessary.

A death certificate in Urdu was sent in, but inaccuracies were found such as expressions in Urdu like "it's well phat innit!" and "wikked pass us me mob so I can fone ya bruva !" which seemed out of place on an official document.

When a hot sounding police woman called the number given by Rashid Hussain, Munir answered giving his name and star sign. He admitted fabricating the story to avoid paying the fines.

John Davies, of Lancashire's Road Safety Partnership, said Munir's con was "almost unbelievable. I wouldn't be surprised if this lad was in Al Qaeda to be honest, just give me five minutes with him.

All credit to the investigating officers across the forces for their determination to bring this man to face justice now lets get the full story."

Old Knudsen who has watched speed one and two starring Sandra Bullock said: " Fair play to the lad for his creativity though I don't know why he bothered for just £180.
If only the police put as much effort into tracking down real criminals. With all these cameras doing their jobs for them you could transfer some of the traffic police into real police jobs."
