Simon Prophet has no criminal drug record and there is no verifiable record of any drug crime ever having been committed at 54 Balfour Street yet in 2003 the Asset and Forfeiture Unit sold Simon's home as an instrumentality of a non existent drug crime.
In violation of non derogable Constitutional law the Asset and Forfeiture Unit presumed Simon's criminal guilt and to satisfy an Act of Parliament that is inconsistent with the Constitution, Simon's "innocent owner" status was ignored by both the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court.
Why was it expedient for the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court to sacrifice South Africa's Bill of Rights in order to respect, protect, promote and fulfil civil asset forfeiture?
In a lawful society it would happen the other way around and civil asset forfeiture would have been sacrificed to respect, protect, promote and fulfil the rights in the Bill of Rights because any law that is inconsistent with the Constitution is invalid.
Civil asset forfeiture is a scam and a serious crime against humanity.
Its real purpose, which is hidden, is not to prevent crime. It is a master mind control game to dupe you and the entire world into quietly accepting to relinquish any individual's right to own land.
Where fairness reigns supreme, in a world that is free, who owns what is as a consequence of a willing buyer and a willing seller and a fundamental function of government is to vociferously protect people's property and this is legally enforceable through Section 25 of the Constitution.
When the South African government meddles into which individuals can own land and which individuals can't own land then South Africa is degraded into an anti-constitutional plight that rages war against the will of people who want to own land.
Julius Malema's proposal to deprive white South African's of their property without compensation has already happened to Simon Prophet in 2003 and the action was sanctioned by the Supreme Court of Appeal in 2005 and was also sanctioned by the Constitutional Court in 2006.
No one has stopped to consider that Malema's demand for land theft and murder of whites is verbal terrorism.
Never mind "hate speech". He should be facing charges under terrorism laws but instead, Deputy President David Mabuza is asking Malema to join the ranks of the ANC.
South Africa is in terrible trouble with two thirds of government voting for expropriation of white owned land without compensation. There is nowhere to place such people but in a basket of idiots.
Who stands to receive the farms?
There are 40 thousand farms in South Africa. How do you divide 40 thousand farms evenly between 40 million blacks? How can one thousand farmers ever agree on how to farm one piece of land and how will one thousand black farmers be able to live in one farm house or there may be two farm houses on each farm?
Can you see how ridiculous these proposals are?
How is the land going to be distributed?
Thoughtful people can predict that the 40 000 farms will go to 40 000 blacks who are friends and family of the elite but for the remaining blacks, 39 million and 960 thousand in all, nothing will change for the better.
Before you vote for your favourite politician, first find out who in the black population of South Africa is going to get what and who in the black population is going to get zilch.
Before we go to the voting poles then Malema and Ramaphosa must first write down their own lists of the names of people who will get and also write down the names of people who will get nothing.
Then you know who to vote for.
If on the Malema list your name is on the list of those who are going to get a farm for free you must vote for Malema.
If on the Ramaphosa list your name appears on the list of those who are going to get a farm for free then you must vote for Ramaphosa.
You want what you can get but first get the facts on black and white. Apply your mind. Have the foresight to see what is impossible and don't be fooled by political lies.
Legally speaking, changing Section 25 will not permit expropriation without compensation. Depriving white farmers of their land for the benefit of black people is racist. Section 1(b) of the Constitution forbids acts of racism.
There is no polite way to window dress terrorism. Call a spade a spade.
We are on the brink of civil war between those who respect the rule of law and those who promote criminality as patriotism.
This website's claim that civil asset forfeiture is a stepping stone to the elimination of private property turns out to be relevant.
Thought it would never happen? Never say never.
Of course we oppose theft but Simon shyly admits to have been tickled to see the likes of Willie Hofmeyr and all the whites who disregarded the Constitution and the rule of law to engineer that Simon live in the street are themselves now facing a real threat of soon also having no home.
We work against and hope against such things happening but it's also high time to peel back the facade that is disguising civil asset forfeiture.
Equality, constitutionality and the rule of law
The following extract is taken from an article written by Leon Louw published by the Free Market Foundation 29th March 2005 relating to powers that are in conflict with the rule of law.
"One of the most extreme is the Prevention of
Organised Crime Act (POCA), known popularly as the asset forfeiture law.
As always, the law was defended with persuasive rhetoric to the effect
that abnormal powers are necessary to fight international organised
crime. When rule of law protagonists queried the extraordinary powers in
the act, they were told that the government needs to be tough on crime,
a sentiment shared by almost everyone, which is why there is widespread
support for the law. We were reminded during the debate that similar
powers exit in the USA, which supposedly legitimises all dubious laws on
the basis that the United States is our benchmark for what ought to be
done during our transition towards being a mature democracy. This is
nearly as bizarre as an attempt to justify dubious things done now on
the grounds that they were done under apartheid.
54 Balfour Street
A forfeiture farce.
54 Balfour Street has never been presented as an exhibit in any criminal trial and in the absence of a crime it was condemned as an instrumentality of a suspected crime by a judge who has been shown to have lied and Simon Prophet who has no criminal drug record, was, together with his family, evicted from his home under the pretence of fighting drug crime.
To add insult to injury, Prophet has been ordered to continue to pay the bank mortgage bond for the same house from which he has since been evicted and that court order was signed by a judge who committed adultery and was accused of raping a woman.
Fraud and corruption
In 2001, to protect and promote the scam called the Prevention of Organized Crime Act, in its attack against Simon Prophet, Willie Hofmeyr told the people of South Africa that civil asset forfeiture would prevent the country from being run by criminals and then all the way up to and after 2009, Willie Hofmeyr, as acting head of the Asset and Forfeiture Unit, watched, seemingly paralyzed, as a man directly connected to an eighty billion Rand corruption, fraud and racketeering disgrace, namely Jacob Zuma, who accepted a bribe from a convicted felon, was elected to run the country as the president of South Africa.
Makes you think doesn't it?
Everyone knows, including Willie Hofmeyr, that in the world of speculation and on a balance of probabilities that Jacob Zuma, with 783 charges of corruption, racketeering and fraud, is toast. Schabir Shaik was sentenced to 15 years jail and his assets were forfeited because he was found guilty of bribing Jacob Zuma but as far as forfeiting Jacob Zuma's assets for accepting the bribe then Willie Hofmeyr stirred not.
Simon Prophet agrees with Jacob Zuma that "a person who is charged remains innocent until proven otherwise" but does not agree with Willie Hofmeyr who maintains that civil asset forfeiture can circumvent criminal justice and forfeit assets from a person who has been found not guilty of crime.
Do not be fooled. Civil asset forfeiture is not preventing crime and it does not prevent our country from being run by criminals. It is destroying property rights and attacking our fundamental freedoms.
In order to succeed, tyranny must present itself to a free nation in increments so that by the time you realize what is happening then itís already too late.
We must see the Prevention of Organized Crime Act for what it really is.
Civil asset forfeiture is not preventing crime and is covertly the beginning part of an elaborate mind control plot to end private ownership of land.
This website uses the case history of Simon Prophet to reveal the extent to which the South African Justice Department has been seduced into openly violating International Law, Constitutional Law, Common Law, Natural Law and the Ten Commandments in order to uphold civil asset forfeiture.
It is not a function of government to deprive people of their property.
Calling Simon Prophet a drug dealer does not entitle the government to violate God's law of "Thou shalt not steal!" and 10 000 people have signed a petition in agreement.
