Chinese people are pissing us all of now STOP


If its not Rhino horn its fake goods if its not that then its abalone or sea food as in fish and crustaceans.....Stop now that's enough 

TWO Chinese nationals have been arrested and a huge haul of 4611 mussels have been seized in a joint bust by department of fisheries officials and the PE flying squad. The bust took place yesterday (March 26 2012) afternoon in the dolosse area opposite North End prison. Mussels are plentiful from east of the harbour all the way to the New Brighton pier.

Mossie Mostert, a senior inspector in the Port Elizabeth office of the department of fisheries said the officers moved in following "information received”.

"The black or rock mussels were found stashed among the dolosse and they were confiscated together with the suspects’ vehicle, a Passat sedan. Two Chinese nationals, a man and a woman, both in their late thirties, were arrested.”

The law is 30 black mussels per person per day, Mostert explained.

"The suspects could face a maximum sentence of a R2-million fine, or five years in prison.”

According to eye witnesses, another load of mussels was removed from the scene in a vehicle by another group of apparently Chinese people, shortly before the officers swooped.

Mostert said a worrying trend had manifested in the last three months with Chinese nationals arrested in three different marine poaching incidents. Two men were arrested in connection with illegal gillnetting in the Swartkops River, two men were arrested in Seaview with in excess of 500 ollykreukel and before that two men were arrested in Blue Horizon Bay with more than 1000 sand mussels, he said.

The latest case but the indication at this stage is that the mussels were due for the local market.The couple were detained last night at Mount Road Police Station and they will likely appear in court this week.
