This is a company one of the 9 security companies contracted to airlines to conduct document verification.— ORTambo (@ortambo_int) December 29, 2018 Airport management says that the security company is contracted to Emirates airline and that it was, in this case, conducting the verification process. "This process is done on behalf of airlines at the International Departures Hall prior to check-in, in order to eliminate unnecessary delays and queues at the Home Affairs Emigration desks. The Home Affairs desk is the final port-controlled area a passenger is subjected to after being checked in by the airline", said Bongiwe Pityi-Vokwana, general manager of the airport.Pityi-Vokwana said that, "in accordance with the prescripts of both the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the South African Civil Aviation Authority, we will write to Emirates and ask it to advise how it will mitigate against this sort of incident in future. We will also ensure that a corrective action plan is submitted".She said that the airport would also be reviewing the licensing conditions of the security company.Pityi-Vokwana said that it was disturbing when those mandated to protect passengers and the integrity of a national key point betrayed the trust placed in them."Over the past year, we saw a number of our own security staff perform incredibly well in interdicting drug smuggling and other crimes. It’s therefore upsetting to see the integrity of security employees, especially those employed by contracted security companies licensed to various stakeholders within the airport ecosystem, damaged by the actions of a selfish few."Pityi-Vokwana said that the airport would continue to act decisively in dealing with crime.*This story has been updated to include the comments from the general manager of the airport.
