South Africa seizes 20 kg of gold from a Lebanese traveling from Dubai


gold-jumpsSouth African Revenue Service (Sars) officials have seized at Tambo International Airport from a Lebanese man traveling to Dubai 20 gold bars worth almost $1 million

The gold bars reportedly weighed 23 kilograms.

Officials say he was initially stopped for attempting to leave the country without the necessary documentation.

A scan of his luggage later revealed the gold bars, for which he provided counterfeit invoices.

SARS spokesperson Sandile Memela says investigations are underway.

“Upon request, he produced self-generated invoices and he has since been handed over to the South African Police Services. He is expected to appear in court tomorrow.”

    That’s why ‘certain types’ converted to diamonds first and then sewed them into a favourite bra.
    Counterfeit invoices will give it away every time, of course.

    Maybe News about ‘Elections’ is becoming too much to bear … perhaps voter turn-out was as bad as in Beirut?
