I am copying this article from the Safari Times, Dec 2011 for the members of AH to know and beware of. Emergency Suspension of Johannes Gysbert Du Preez, Tieldman Roos Erasmus, Hermanus Bernardus Rossouw, Out of Africa Adventurous Safaris Information was provided to SCI that indicated that Messrs. Du Preez, Erasmus and Rossouw were served indictments on September 30, 2011, in the Musina Magistrates Court in South Africa, for violations of the wildlife laws. The charges against these three and seven others who were also arrested at the time include 59 counts of killing rhinocerous, 381 counts of dehorning rhinocerous, 375 counts of possession of rhinocerous horn, and 385 counts of selling rhinocerous horn. There were also counts related to leopard and elephant hunting. On October 20, 2011, based on this information, the SCI Executive Committee placed the SCI membership of theses three persons, Du Preez, Erasmus and Rossouw, on suspension and directed the SCI Board of Inquiry to take up the matter. All three were offered the opportunity for a hearing on the emergency suspension, but none of them requested a hearing within the required time. The suspension of the memberships of these three persons is effective for 90 days, beginning on October 20, 2011, and may be renewed. During the period of suspension, all the privileges of SCI membership, including attendance at annual SCI Hunters Convention and advertising in SCI publications are suspended. These suspensions also apply to any business entity controlled directly or indirectly by the sanctioned member, his or her spouse, or other closely related family member. SCI chapters are required to observe the suspensions and to have no further SCI dealings whatsoever with these three persons. The term"nodealings" includes, without limitation, allowing such a suspended or terminated member to: be a member of the chapter;to hold office in a chapter; to advertise or sell goods and services, either directly or indirectly, at a Chapter function or activity; or to sponsor, donate or otherwise participate in Chapter functions and activities, either directly or indirectly. This shows that if reported and with good cause SCI will do something about it and it can hurt the bad Outfitters on this side of the big pond as well.
