Ministers on the spot in CJ security controversy

The Citizen "Dar es Salaam. Two government ministers were yesterday at pains to explain why retired Chief Justice Augustino Ramadhani’s security detail has been withdrawn.

Mr Shamsi Vuai Nahodha of Home Affairs and Mathias Chikawe of Good Governance told The Citizen they were not aware of that development.

In a phone interview, Mr Nahodha said he would seek audience with police chiefs to establish what had happened.
“I want to assure you that that (when the information was revealed on Tuesday) it was the first time I heard of the news and I was surprised too, because the regulations are clear,” the minister said."

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."
