Savanna Tobacco Company (PTY) Ltd. v. Minister of Finance, et al.

A cigarette company sought an order from the High Court for the release of cigarettes that were detained after South African officials suspected the cigarettes were being smuggled into the country. The company contended that the cigarettes were manufactured in Zimbabwe and were in transit through South Africa. The High Court dismissed the application and determined the activity was an attempt to smuggle the cigarettes into the country since, among other reasons, the detained cigarettes bore the marks that clearly prove the cigarettes were destined for South Africa.
