Southern Sun has said in a statement that there is no evidence to suggest that the Beverly Hills Hotel or its staff is responsible for an alleged theft from the Greek football team.
Both the hotel and its staff were cleared in a thorough investigation.
City Press reported yesterday that three members of the Greek World Cup football team had cash stolen from their rooms in their five-star hotel in Umhlanga. The theft occurred two days ago but the team is reported to be reluctant to press charges.
The security management of the Beverly Hills Hotel and an independent security company contracted to the hotel have conducted a thorough investigation of the alleged incident, but could find no evidence to support the allegation.
The findings of the investigation have been communicated to the management of the Greek football team and the South African security authorities.
As a matter of policy, the hotel cooperates closely with the authorities and if further or new information comes to light, these will also be investigated promptly, they said in a statement.
The Beverly Hills Hotel has a policy to investigate and prosecute all crime.
The hotel encourages all visitors and guests to use safekeeping facilities such as room safes for their valuables.
