Riaan Kucher is directly responsible for allowing the continued use of my Westcliff Drive guest house near Fick's Pool, illegally and without my permission, by my ex husband who pockets all the annual proceeds. This has been the case for five years whereby I have had to spend more than the house is worth in legal fees to try to right this wrong. I firmly believe Riaan Kucher is open to bribes from my ex husband's unethical attorney Charle Smith Symms who operates his small town law firm using Fraud, Deceipt and Misrepresentation, and whose 'buddy network' includes the Hermanus Magistrate, the Overstrand Municipality (Riaan Kucher), the Senior Maintenance Prosecutor for the Western Cape Mr Nigel Jones, and even the Cape Town Magistrate's Court where Smith Symms along with his daughter Kathleen, were prepared to lie under oath to protect his 'prize client' against charges of Grevous Bodily Harm with Intent against me. There are no rules in South Africa. Money buys Justice and it has turned into the Wild West.
