Man caught trying to smuggle millions out of SA

DubaiA South African man is expected to appear in court on Thursday after he was caught trying to smuggle more than R10 million into Dubai.

The suspect was stopped at Cape Town International Aiport on Wednesday. Customs officials seized the cash that he’d been carrying in two suitcases.

He’d been en route from Pietermaritzburg to the United Arab Emirates via Cape Town.

The Hawks’ Lloyd Ramovha: “He’s expected to appear in the Bellville magistrates court on Thursday and is facing charges of contravening the Customs and Excise Act which amounts to failure to declare [the money].”
