The Lebanese national was intending to leave the country for Dubai with the gold bars.


A Lebanese national was on Monday arrested after being found with gold bars worth more than R7 million rand at OR Tambo International Airport.
SARS Customs officials in Pretoria intercepted the passenger, who was en route to Dubai, and found him carrying 17 rectangular gold bars and three circular bars weighing 23 kg, Mpumalanga News reported.
According to Sars spokesperson Sandile Memela the lone traveller was intending to leave the country without proper documentation.
“When his luggage was scanned, irregular images were identified and a hand search found these to be gold bars estimated to be worth R 7 033 600,” he said.
“The traveller produced self-generated invoices and he was immediately nabbed and handed over to the SAPS but SARS Customs has detained the goods for further investigations,” Memela said.
