Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The thief who stole part of a R2,5million Pierneef painting from the SABC in Auckland Park was sentenced to eight years in jail this week.
David Brett Urbasch, 43, who confessed to stealing the oil painting from the SABC two years ago, was sentenced in the Newlands regional court in Johannesburg.
Police were still looking for the missing part of the painting. The 2,75m x 1,8m painting is worth R2,5million. - Sapa
