STATEMENT: Stop tinkering: Arrest crooked cops involved in gun-licensing fraud and conduct forensic audit on Central Firearms Registry

For the past 10 years the police and the Minister have kicked the fraud and corruption can in the firearms control system down the road. The murder of Charl Kinnear has to be the line in the sand, when we as a country say enough is enough. Gun Free SA calls on the Presidency to urgently put in place the mechanism to 1) conduct an independent forensic audit of all firearm licences, permits and authorisations issued by the CFR over the last five years and 2) systematicially review the entire firearms control system to identify operational and policy gaps to stop rampant and deadly corruption spanning over a decade. The office of the Auditor-General would be best placed to undertake this audit and review.
