Court seizes luxury vehicle

the Namibian "BMW X3 bought with ‘proceeds of crime’ THE Namibian Police have seized a swanky BMW sports utility vehicle which was allegedly bought with money which was the proceeds of crime.
The vehicle was seized by the Police after an order authorising the seizure was granted by Judge Louis Muller in the High Court in Windhoek on Wednesday last week. The order was granted in terms of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act of 2004.
The car, a BMW X3 3.0D model, was bought at a price of N$313 490 by a former Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry official who is now accused of having committed corruption, fraud and theft.
The alleged crimes, which are being investigated by the Anti-Corruption Commission, are claimed to have been committed when false invoices were submitted to the Namibia Development Corporation (NDC) and payments of close to N$750 000 were made by the NDC as a result.
This was stated by Prosecutor General Martha Imalwa in an affidavit filed with the High Court.
Imalwa informed the court that the BMW X3 was bought by a now former Ministry of Agriculture official, Willem Mulokoshi, in his sister’s name in May last year."

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."
