SAdoubles down on double standards

The state was the biggest beneficiary from the collapse of Tannenbaum's R3bn Ponzi scheme.

Ironically, the South African government ended up being the biggest beneficiary from the collapse of Barry Tannenbaum’s multi-billion-rand Ponzi fraud rather than the creditors.

Readers will recall how hundreds of wealthy South Africans were tempted with too-good-to-be-true quick profits to invest large sums – some individuals invested tens of millions of rand – supposedly to be used to fund the importation of the raw materials used to manufacture drugs for the treatment of HIV/Aids.

It continually amazes me that Australia, which was once basically a prison, and now has the vast majority of its population upstanding, law-abiding, and wonderful businessmen are now forced by the Australian authorities/justice system to allow despicably South Africans, who have fleeced hundreds of people and left 10's destitute to live there.
Perhaps they simply yearn for the old days.
Perhaps it's time for the man in the street in Australia to demand explanations from their "justice system".
