Crime does pay

Finweek English Edition - - Letters - TUAN PICKARD

RE­GARD­ING THE on­go­ing con­cerns about crime and the Gov­ern­ment’s ap­par­ent dis­in­ter­est in ad­mit­ting that it’s a prob­lem, and

its lack of in­ter­est in try­ing to curb it, made me won­der what they get out of crime. Get one of your in­trepid writ­ers to find out from the short-term in­sur­ers like San­tam, M&F, SA Ea­gle and Hol­lard what they paid out last year for theft claims and cal­cu­late the VAT com­po­nent. It’s been sug­gested to me that it’s quite a con­sid­er­able sum.
