Metro cop wants luxury rides back

2013-02-11 09:02

'THEY WON'T LOOK AFTER MY RIDES': Durban metro police officer Sibusiso Mpisane (left) and his wife, Shauwn, believe that their seized vehicles won't be adequately cared for not to mention the staggering storage costs.

Durban metro police officer Sibusiso Mpisane and his wife, Shauwn, have lodged an urgent application to retrieved their nine luxury vehicles from the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU).

The application was lodged in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg after their vehicles were seized by the AFU in February 2013.

The couple cited unsecure storage facilities for the vehicles and asked that Trevor White be removed as curator in the proceedings, reported The Star.

TAX EVASION CHARGE

Shauwn Mpisane said in court papers that she would have to pay for transporting and moving the vehicles and that the storage costs would deplete "my estate and that of my family rapidly".

The AFU was granted an order authorising it to freeze and seize R140-million in property, including cars and four fixed properties.

Shauwn Mpisane is currently on trial in the Durban Regional Court for tax evasion. She has pleaded not guilty.

"Since she [Shauwn] is married in community of property to her husband, it includes all property owned by the couple," the NPA said at the time.

The State had until February 21 2013 to file a responding affidavit in the urgent application, after which the Mpisanes would have until February 19 to file a response, before a date would be set for the matter to be heard.
