2012-12-04 07:18

Johannesburg - A Nigerian man and his Malawian girlfriend appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Monday following a R1.2m drug bust, the Hawks said.

The man, 37, and the 23-year-old woman had their cast postponed to Friday, when they would apply for bail, Captain Paul Ramaloko said in a statement.

They were arrested on Thursday after police found a laboratory in a house in Brackendowns, Alberton, used to manufacture the drug cat (methcathinone). Chemicals, drugs and equipment worth about R1.2m were confiscated.

The laboratory was found after a policeman who lived in the area noticed a strange smell coming from the house.

      Serve a long jail sentence first and then get deported and never allowed back.

    They are protected by the SA Constitution and our very liberal Bill of Human Rights. Even if they were caught red handed by a full panel of Judges from the highest court in the land, they are still entitled to every single right and protection that Joe Innocent, a South African citizen has. Xenophobia is guaranteed to be the next thing on South Africa's journey to ruin, and maybe, just maybe this is not such a bad thing if directed at selected segments such as the known foreign criminals.. There is no doubt that they deal in death....and don't even pretend and fool yourself that your child is safe from their negative influences....they're not, no matter where they are!!

      To right I totally agree I'm so sick of criminals shouting human rights after they have abused the rights of other and put others in danger , thank you for talking some sense I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only one that hates the phrase human rights
