Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
A Briton accused of being part of an international drug syndicate allegedly misrepresented himself when he applied for a life partner permit, the Verulam magistrate's court heard yesterday.
According to an affidavit by Home Affairs official Sam Langa, Paul Bromley was recorded as being the life partner of South African Dennis Joanie.
"Surprisingly, Dennis is married to Warren Earl Dennis," Langa told the court during a bail application by Bromley.
"Life partner permits are only issued to foreigners who are legal and have existing relationships with South Africans who are not married," he said.
It also emerged that the department had no documents showing that Bromley was in South Africa to conduct business.
Bromley, Paul and John Beasley, Perumal Naidoo, Morgan Nadasen and Gopal Ganesh were arrested after the seizure of drugs valued at R600million.
The case continues. - Sapa
