As reported yesterday the Fishrot case where former fisheries minister Bernard Esau and former justice minister Sacky Shanghala stand accused of corruption and receiving bribes, has been postponed to 14 December 2020. The Namibia press agency reports that the accused, who face charges of using their positions to commit corruption and receive bribes, and of diverting more than N$ 170 million from the National Fishing Corporation of Namibia for personal use, have been in custody since their arrest in November 2019 and have been asking the State to grant them bail or release them from custody because investigations are taking long to complete. While delivering her verdict though, Windhoek Magistrate Vanessa Stanley said the length of the investigations into the matter could be justified to allow the State enough time for investigations.
