Fishrot Six abandon bail application

Staff Reporter

THE Fishrot Six will remain behind bars until 20 February 2020, as they have abandoned their intent to bring a formal bail application forward in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court.

 

The defence lawyers in the matter, Tinashe Chibwana and Gilroy Kasper, representing former fisheries minister Bernhard Esau, former justice minister Sacky Shanghala, James Hatuikulipi, Tamson Hatuikulipi, Ricardo Gustavo and Pius Mwatelulo this morning indicated that their clients will not pursue the matter any further at this stage.

 

 

Both the defence and prosecution consisting of Hesekiel Iipinge and Bernadine Bertolini, agreed to postpone the formal bail application until late in the second month of the new year to allow for further investigations into the corruption, fraud and money laundering scandal involving fishing quotas, to take place.
