KUALA LUMPUR: The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has revoked the licence of a taxi operator and his vehicle permit for charging two French tourists RM800 for a short ride last month. SPAD said in a statement this followed investigations into a complaint by the tourists who were charged the fare for a ride from KLCC to the National Mosque here on Dec 17. If found guilty, the operator could face a fine and/or jail term and the vehicle, forfeited. "The individual involved will also be blacklisted to prevent him from getting a taxi operator's licence in future," it said. SPAD said the revocation was carried out as the operator had contravened requirements under Section 22 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
