Jason Iyambo, one of the suspects arrested in connection with the Fishrot corruption scandal in November 2019, was on Thursday sentenced to nine months imprisonment. Nampa reports that 35-year-old Iyambo earlier this week pleaded guilty in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court to a charge of attempting to defeat the course of justice when he admitted to offering a bribe of N$ 250 000 to a police officer attached to the Anti-Corruption Commission to attain bank cards belonging to James Hatuikulipi. The remaining nine accused persons, who include former Fisheries and Marine Resources minister Bernhard Esau, his son-in-law Tamson Hatuikulipi, former Justice minister Sacky Shanghala, James Hatuikulipi, Ricardo Gustavo, Pius Mwatelulo, and the former Ceo of the National Fishing Corporation, Mike Nghipunya return to the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court on 14 December 2020 to hear the decision taken by the Office of the Prosecutor-General in respect of their case.
