Priority Escapes managing director Francois Swart.
Lobby group AfriForum has welcomed the arrest of businessman Francois Swart.
Swart, out on bail following his court appearance in the Modimolle Magistrate’s Court, is alleged to have defrauded would-be travellers of hundreds of thousands of rand in holiday trips that never materialised.
The police issued an arrest warrant for Swart last year, which AfriForum said police instituted after his alleged victims, Pamela-Anne Dolan and Bugs van Heerden, filed a criminal complaint at the Modimolle police station in August.
