Man nabbed at CT Airport trying to smuggle millions


A South African man is to appear in court on Thursday after being caught trying to smuggle more than R10 million out of the country.

After being stopped at Cape Town International Airport on Wednesday, the suspect's two suitcases, that held the money, were seized by customs officials.

The suspect was on his way to the United Arab Emirates via Cape Town from Port Elizabeth.

The Hawks' Lloyd Ramovha said: "He's expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Thursday and is facing charges of contravening the Customs and Excise Act which amounts to failure to declare [the money]."
