Dr Mohammad Zaman is now claiming R400 million in damages from Home Affairs, saying his life was nearly ruined.
He said in papers before the Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, that this was done while he lived in Canada for a while.

Zaman fought a legal battle to rectify the situation for years. Although the court in 2014 ordered the department to give him back his identity, this was only done in 2016 - 10 years after it was stolen from him....
