Grace Mugabe hoodwinked

Times LIVE: "President Robert Mugabe's family could lose their luxurious $7-million mansion in Hong Kong because the Chinese businessman whom they fronted to purchase the house for them four years ago is refusing to hand over the title deeds.

Highly placed government insiders say businessman Ping Sung Hsieh sweet-talked first lady Grace Mugabe into buying the house in his name after convincing her that the media would "blow the issue apart" if the house was put in the Mugabe name."

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."
