Joint Operation a huge success

13 July 2018 | Crime

Botswana hosted the 6th Joint Law Enforcement Operation (JLEO) of Trans Kalahari Corridor Management Committee (TKCMC) member states Botswana, Namibia and South Africa at Moatle recently.

The operation was conducted under the theme “Unlocking Trade relations between Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and beyond”.

Member states resolved that legislation on the transportation of dangerous goods should be fully implemented. They also identified the need to establish a joint law enforcement preparatory committee, to draw up a joint law enforcement implementation plan and to have engagement with communities around the JLEO site.

During the operation, low vehicle volumes were realised at Pioneer Gate. This could have been due to the fact that transport operators heard there was a JLEO operation and may have delayed their travel or used alternative routes.

By the end of the JLEO, a total of 2 262 vehicles were stopped, 704 vehicles were inspected including 196 trucks and 254 cases were opened. In total 125 vehicles with general defects, 16 vehicles with worn out tyres, 19 unlicensed vehicles were detected and 13 vehicles were impounded. Three incidents of conveyance of hazardous goods without out a permit were also recorded.

Five drinking and driving cases were registered, 174 drivers were screened for alcohol and one person was arrested for possession of dagga. Fifteen illegal immigrants were also discovered while 25 persons were charged for driving without a license and 19 drivers were charged for transporting passengers without a permit.

Nineteen unlicensed motor vehicles were also detected and two Botswana registered vehicles with uncleared goods were detected by customs officials.
