Firearms: call to verify licences

2010-10-27 00:00

POLICE have called on all members of the public who applied for firearm licences before 2010 to visit the stations where they had lodged their applications.

Applicants must bring their identity documents to verify that their licences have been approved.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Joey Jeevan said they are to report at the Plessislaer, Pietermaritzburg, Mountain Rise, Howick and Richmond firearm registration centres.

She said these are for licences that have been approved but not yet collected.

“Members of the public in possession of firearms for safekeeping on behalf of other licence holders must ensure they are in possession of a SAP 539 [Permission to Store a Firearm], which is issued only by a designated firearm official,” she said.
