Four arrested for selling liquor without licence


Four suspects were arrested for selling liquor without a licence during an operation conducted in Makause, Marathon and Delport informal settlements on October 10.

“The operation was to address gender-based violence and other serious crimes, including murder, in informal settlements,” said Primrose spokesperson Sgt Styles Maome.

“Two taverns were closed down in Marathon informal settlement, while the other two were closed down in Delport and Makause informal settlements.

“We have come to realise that often gender-based violence emanates from liquor abuse.”


Three of the four suspects paid admission of guilt fines and were warned and released, while the fourth suspect will appear in the Germiston Magistrate’s Court.
