Man travelling from Zimbabwe Nabbed with R11 Million in Gold Pieces

JOHANNESBURG | A 33-year-old suspect is expected to appear in the Kempton Park regional court today after being arrested at the OR Tambo International Airport with 23 pieces of gold — worth an estimated R11 million — in his luggage.

The Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation team made the arrest on Saturday, after the man, who was travelling from Zimbabwe, was requested to scan his luggage at the SA Revenue Service’s custom section at international arrivals, police said in a statement.

“He allegedly failed to declare any items and did not have any permits or licences to be in possession or transport gold and the Hawks were called to effect the arrest and conduct further investigation,” police said.

The preliminary investigation by the Hawks revealed that the suspect travelled from Harare in Zimbabwe to Johannesburg.

The 23 pieces of gold were seized for further investigation. — AFP.
