SECURITY BOSS FINED
THE owner of a security company used by alleged 28s gang boss Ralph Stanfield was fined R30 000 after the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) seized firearms and defective firearm permits.
The DPCI (or Hawks) said yesterday Schlomo Schwartz, 53, was served with the fine on Thursday.
“The firearms and defective permits were seized from the security guards working for a company owned by Schwartz. These guards were escorting Stansfield to Khayelitsha Court on July 16, 2017, when they were disarmed by
the members of the Hawks,” the specialised organised crime unit said.
Stanfield, who survived an attempted “hit” last year, is one of 23 accused, along with three police officers, who faces charges related to allegations that officers at the SAPS Central Firearms Registry helped arm gangsters and drug kingpins in the Western Cape. |
