Crime does pay
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.
