TWO men, who were added to the list of suspects in the Fishrot corruption saga are set to appear in court today after they handed themselves over to the police in Windhoek.
The 34-year-old Phillipus Mwapopi and Otniel Shuundifonya, 35, will be charged alongside Former justice minister, Sakeus Shanghala, the former fisheries minister, Benard Esau, former Investec Asset Management Managing Director, James Hatuikulipi, his colleague Ricardo Gustavo, Pius Mwatelula, and former Fishcor CEO Mike Nghipunya.
The progress made with the investigation into the matter prompted Prosecutor General, Martha Imalwa to direct that the two men must also be arrested and charged. A third suspect, lawyer Marén De Klerk who checked himself in a mental asylum in South Africa during January this year must still be arrested and extradition procedures in this regard have already started.
Mwapopi and Shuundifonya surrendered themselves to investigators of the Anti-Corruption Commission while in the company of their legal representative, Milton Engelbrecht.
