No arrests in ex-mayor violent attack case

the Namibian: "BY LATE yesterday afternoon, the men, who launched a violent attack on former Windhoek mayor Vivienne Graig and her husband on Friday, were still at large.
This, despite a neighbour, Ettienne Labuschagne, informing Police that he caught a man loading a flat-screen television (TV) into a car seemingly hidden in the veld close to Graig’s Klein Windhoek house.
According to Labuschagne, he was on his way to work at about 08h00 on Friday when he saw the man carrying the TV from an open piece of veld, loading it onto the back seat of a City Golf and then driving off.
Labuschagne told The Namibian that there were two other men in the car."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper: "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October.

In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention.

Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person.
The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
