stealing artefacts

13 May 2016, 07:14  - Joyce.Jagaroo

IT saddens me, and I would say most of the country, when one reads of temples, churches, mosques and other places of worship being robbed, broken into and desecrated.

How low can individuals go just to fulfil their greed?

One has to understand that as long there is a demand for these kind of artefacts, thieves will thrive, therefore the middle operators also need to be put away, not fined, or just shut down, but locked up and the keys thrown away.

These people are the scourge who live off the thieves and criminals. People should not protect these middle operators by keeping quiet.

Let the authorities know, because tomorrow it could be you. Criminals should be behind bars where they belong.
