“ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CRIME AND CORRUPTION AT OR TAMBO”

SAYS PROFESSIONAL HUNTERS SA

SOUTH AFRICA - The Professional Hunters’ Association of South Africa (PHASA) said today that they are collaborating with national anti-corruption detectives to root out corrupt officials at the OR Tambo international airport (Johannesburg).

On 13 July, five visible policing officers appeared before Kempton Park’s Magistrate Court on corruption charges, while another police officer arrested for defeating the ends of justice is facing drug charges.

“OR Tambo is the first point of contact for our overseas clients and we will do everything possible to ensure that their trip to our beautiful country is a safe and pleasant one,” says Tharia Unwin, chief executive officer of PHASA.

“For obvious reasons, improved security and a zero tolerance for corruption and crime is in the best interest of not just our clients, but SA as a whole. Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has PHASA members full cooperation and support,” adds Unwin.

On Monday, during a special meeting held at the airport last week, Minister Mbalula said that specialised police units will be deployed at OR Tambo to help curb and identify suspected criminal activities.
