Robbery At Johannesburg Airport

Mon Sep 13, 2004 2:58 am

Some security!! Four armed men held up and robbed a restaurant inside the domestic terminal at Johanesburg airport recently.

For those who don't know the terminal the arrivals is on the ground floor with the departures on the second floor with a retail floor in between. There is no direct access from outside to the retail floor, you either need to go up or down a floor to get out of the terminal, so it's not a question of just running out!

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Indeed a very bad thing.

Is there a law in South Africa which prohibits "access control" to a public area?
