According to De Haas, cash company employees might have participated in the robberies.
Since the expert panel’s July report from the previous year, I don’t believe much has changed, and neither do we have enough control over guns and ammunition or a properly well-regulated security industry.
The absence of independent police services is a major issue. According to De Haas, almost all of this crime stems from the same issue.
