Three abalone poachers have been fined R100,000 each after they were bust for running an illegal processing facility in Cape Town.

The men were arrested in October by a team comprising the Hawks’ serious organised crime investigation team, crime intelligence, CapeNature and department of forestry, fisheries and environmental affairs.  This followed a tipoff that they were operating an abalone processing facility in Parow East. They all pleaded guilty to multiple charges of possession of illegal abalone.

“They were consequently found guilty on all charges and were ordered to each pay R100,000 into the criminal asset recovery account with an alternative three months' imprisonment wholly suspended for five years with conditions,” said Hawks spokesperson Zinzi Hani.
