Liquor Store in trouble over ID books for liquor debt

Liquor Store -  The SAP confiscated ID documents, bank cards and SASSA cards when executing a search warrant on a liquor store in the Winelands region recently.   The owner allegedly withheld the documents of farm workers until their liquor debt had been settled.   A two-year jail sentence or a fine of up to R500 000 may be imposed for such an offence.   This action follows soon on the heels of a warrant executed on a Saldanha Bay liquor store for allegedly selling liquor illegally to unlicensed traders (read article on our Blog below).

The Western Cape Liquor Authority encouraged the public to report illegal behaviour by licence holders to it or their local police office.
