OR Tambo has been in the headlines for a number of contentious reasons, including a brazen robbery of R20.7 million worth of bank notes from Standard Bank at the airport by men dressed as police officers, and media coverage of syndicates working from the airport that target travelers in hijackings and house robberies.
