The hunting season has arrived. In some homes, the freezers are already packed and biltong is nearly out.
- Expired licences and the Fidelity Security Services court judgement
The judgement of the Supreme Court of Appeal in the Fidelity Security Services resulted in the distribution of incorrect information. Some publications announced that this judgements allows anyone whose firearm licence had expired to apply for a new licence for that firearm, and that such a person does not have to wait for the next amnesty to do so
This is not correct. SA Hunters advises members not to follow this route because you are in illegal possession of a firearm, and the Police will not accept your application.
