I was speechless receiving the de registration certificate ( a whole lot of money for couriers x 4 etc poorer:

AND IT TOOK ME ONE WEEK - YES 5 DAYS TO GET IT REGISTERED IN NAMIBIA WITH AN AUTHORITY TO FLY
I processed a de registration application with SACAA today the supporting documents and amount of detail drove me up the wall. Let's see how quickly its processed .

Well yes sure but if caught they would surely loose on a fruitful career going forward and thus really no ones spare change would make it worth it. At least that's how I would be thinking if in the situation.

Even if the entire clan boarded and fuel onboard allowed a direct flight to nearest port in SA I would think about it but still not a legal flight no matter what the circumstances are.

Extract from Business Tech News today...(sic)

"The National Prosecuting Authority’s Asset Forfeiture Unit has been granted a restraint order against the Gupta family for their role in the Vrede Dairy Project.
The unit said that the Bloemfontein High Court granted the order, which allowed it to seize assets from the family to the tune of R250 million.
These assets are tied to “individuals and entities who were implicated in the offences of theft, fraud and money laundering in respect of the Vrede Dairy Project: Estina matter,” the NPA said.

It came as a result of an ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by the Hawks.
The R250 million in seized assets will be restrained pending the outcome of a criminal trial. If there is a conviction, the AFU will apply for a confiscation order for the recovery of the claimed amount.

Among the assets seized are immovable property (residential and business premises, including farms), two aircrafts,a helicopter, vehicles and bank accounts belonging to certain entities.
Gupta companies affected include Oakbay Investments, Islandsite Investments, Confidents Concept, Sahara Computer, Westdawn Investments, and Aerohaven Trading."
There are three simple rules for making a perfect landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

I'm surprised Marius.

Next think you are going to be crying lumpy custard for all the Sanral employees that lose their jobs supporting e-tolls.

For a buffelboer you've gone soft :evil:
