Cape Chamber concerned by crime
Businessman Robert Bader was killed when five men entered his cheese factory shop on Tuesday.
CAPE TOWN - Police are not doing enough to curb business crime, the Cape Chamber of Commerce said on Thursday.
The recent murder of one of its members in Montague Gardens has highlighted the need to address the problem.
Businessman Robert Bader was killed when five men entered his cheese factory shop.
The suspects demanded he open the safe, while employees were held at gunpoint on Tuesday.
Bader's daughter was wounded.
The suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No arrests have been made.
The chamber's Viola Manuel says many businesses complained about increased crime.
"Business has a lot to contend with at the moment. We have increasing fuel prices, increasing input costs in terms of labour and electricity, and we still have to fight this issue of criminality in business."
On 10 July, three suspects robbed a jewellery store at Carnival Mall on Gauteng's East Rand.
They made off with an undisclosed amount of money and jewellery.
